Mergers & Acquisitions

Effective Capital advises and supports its clients in their mergers and acquisitions operations.

International dimension
backed by a sectoral expertise

With over 30 deals made over the past few years, our team has proven itself in the field of mergers and acquisitions and now provides its know-how to its entrepreneurs’ clients both in France and in the United States through its offices in Paris, New York and Miami.

We structure the process to fit the client not the other way around. The client’s strategic advantage determines our recommendation of a full auction, a limited auction, or a negotiated transaction.
