DELSOL Avocats advised the ALTIFORT group on its acquisition of Wendt Boart SPRL (Belgium), a subsidiary of the 3M Group specializing in the manufacture of cutting tools for the glass industry.

Founded in 2014 by two entrepreneurs, Stanislas Vigier (CEO) and Bart Gruyaert (Managing Director), ALTIFORT is an international group operating in Germany, Belgium, France and Ukraine and specializing in fluids (Altifluid), mechanical engineering (Altimotion) and construction (Altibuild).

For the purposes of this distressed M&A transaction, DELSOL Avocats relied locally on the expertise of the firm of CEW, a fellow member of the Trans-European Law Firm Alliance network (Charles Price).
3M Company was advised by Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP.
