Do you have a background in Corporate M&A and are you a Swedish, Finnish or Danish native speaking qualified lawyer? For Total Specific Solutions (TSS) I am looking for a Legal Counsel M&A to become responsible for all legal aspects of the M&A transactions in the Nordics.
Total Specific Solutions
Total Specific Solutions (TSS) is a Pan-European Vertical Market Software (VMS) group that consists of over 120 independent business units that deliver software products and services to their specific market segments.
The objective at TSS is to acquire, own and operate dominant players in local, complex, and knowledge-intensive software verticals (both public and private). To build a leading and enduring Vertical Market Software company, they have to provide their customers with solutions that let their business thrive, today and in the future.
TSS (approx. 4,700 employees) has a very strong position in the Netherlands but is growing rapidly internationally through acquisitions. Over the last six years TSS has completed over 100 acquisitions of established players in existing and new markets across Europe. TSS is able to add substantial value to these acquired companies. With its 'best practices' TSS is able to help these companies to professionalize. In this way results can be improved significantly.
The ambition of TSS to grow nationally and internationally has led to the formation of local M&A teams in the past three years. Although other CSI operating groups also have shareholdings in Europe, TSS is considered to be the platform for the European ambition of CSI. As part of its international M&A ambition TSS aims to further expand its M&A presence in several European markets, including DACH, the Nordic countries as well as CEE.
