Last year, several small companies, which provide services to tens of thousands of customers every day, changed owners. The transactions belonged among the top deals of the largest law firms in Slovakia. This included the sale of the Sygic technological company, another ownership change of the Skylink satellite services provider, and a new investor entering the Hopin transport app. There was also the conclusion of a merger of two insurance companies, NN and Aegon.
This stems from the list of the 50 largest or most important transactions overseen by the largest law firms in Slovakia, which provided their data to The Slovak Spectator for the fourth consecutive year. Every year, the list is dominated by transaction advisory services in mergers and acquisitions (joining and purchasing or sale of companies).
This time around, mainly the sales and purchases of technology companies are at stake. Lawyers are more often frequently boasting their references in the finance area – that is, the advisory services they provide to banks to arrange large loans or to debtors to refinance loans or issue bonds.
