Our experts provide highly qualified advice on all relevant matters, prepare key information for all stakeholders and, in doing so, help the client save valuable time. In this way, and regardless of whether a buyer or a seller is involved, Rödl & Partner creates the basis for successful negotiations.

Transaction Report Viessmann acquires minority stake in Priva In April 2021, Viessmann Group, the leading provider of climate solutions for every type of living space, acquired a minority stake in the greenhouse specialist Priva Group, a Dutch technology company for climate and process control technology and energy efficiency. The resulting strategic partnership allows Priva to rely on an international and strategic partner and to accelerate its innovative technologies and international growth. Viessmann can rapidly develop its business in the field of climate solutions for commercial buildings and explore business opportunities in the growing market of indoor and vertical farming. Viessmann was comprehensively advised on this cross-border transaction in all financial and tax related transaction issues by an interdisciplinary team of Rödl & Partner. Representing the foundation of an international partnership of two family owned businesses with global reach, Rödl & Partner was a natural fit to accompany this transaction project as advisor, benefitting from its strong presence among family businesses and extensive knowledge in small- and mid-cap transactions.
