SINGAPORE, 11 April 2018 – Alpadis Group, the Swiss based provider of multi-jurisdictional corporate and bespoke fiduciary services, announces today the launch of its Mergers & Acquisitions practice. Based in Singapore, the practice will enable Alpadis Group to provide a range of advisory services for cross-border transactions spanning Asia-Pacific and Europe for privately-owned companies and institutional investors (family offices, private equity and venture capital firms).

The practice will be led by Dominik Heer, Head of M&A, who has over 15 years of investment management and M&A experience across Europe and South-East Asia. Dominik has led teams in major PE firms, has developed a deep network of intermediaries, entrepreneurs, financing partners and service providers across the region, and has worked and executed various large and small M&As in Europe and Asia.

“M&A activity in the Asia-Pacific region has seen strong growth over the past few years, and this is expected to continue” says Alain Esseiva, CEO of Alpadis Group, adding “Our practice will position Alpadis Group to advise our current and future clients on the best ways to execute their M&A initiatives, and guide them through from start to finish. Under Dominik’s leadership, we will be able to advise on clients who are looking to sell their business, and seek a relevant suitor, as well as advise those looking to buy the right opportunity or looking to partner with another firm.”

In addition to Mergers & Acquisitions, the new practice will also advise on joint ventures (JV), alliances and partnerships, helping its clients find the right partner, structure a deal, and manage partner relationships effectively.

“This new capability will be a game-changer for Alpadis Group, and perfectly complements the current corporate and private client services that we provide”adds Dominik Heer, Head of M&A, continuing “we will be able to ride the wave of M&A in the region and provide comprehensive services for clients, leveraging our expertise, discretion and attention to detail”.
