International industrial manufacturer successfully completes merger negotiations

Clients Manufacturer

Jones Day successfully completed highly complex works council negotiations for an international industrial manufacturer regarding the split of a production plant, allocating hundreds of employees to three different future owners, all of which remained on the same production premises and in part mutually exchanged certain services. The plant split was difficult to implement under operational, legal, space and access aspects as it was dominated by EU merger control requirements, in order to make the merger of two major company groups permissible on an international basis.
