A specialist in mergers and acquisitions
During his 30 years as a specialist in friendly acquisitions, joint ventures and hostile takeovers, Pierre Servan-Schreiber became convinced that an amicable, negotiated solution to all disputes or conflicts of interests was a far better, more productive and efficient approach.
His desire to shift his practice towards mediation and in particular within family groups stems from his own family history which saw the creation and the loss of a large press group in France (Les Echos, l’Express, l’Expansion, la Tribune,…).
