Mergers & Acquisitions

Our attorneys are dedicated to providing services that will enhance our clients' abilities to grow and prosper. The firm's Business and Corporate Law attorneys have the skills required to be effective in negotiating and consummating a business acquisition or combination in the best interests of the client. Whether your transaction is a complex, multi-million-dollar merger, or the transfer of the assets of a family-owned business from one generation to the next, our attorneys have the experience to analyze, structure, negotiate, document and close the deal.

The transactional experience of our attorneys, and the breadth of our practice have allowed us to historically represent a broad array of public and private companies, private equity firms and financial sponsors, banks and other institutions and individuals in almost every type of M&A situation. Because M&A transactions are often complex and require input from a number of practice areas, our M&A attorneys work closely as a team in complementary disciplines such as tax, intellectual property, banking & finance, employment and international transactions to provide advice on the myriad legal, regulatory and business issues that typically arise in acquisition transactions.

Our attorneys have represented sellers/targets, purchasers, VC/PE and other equity investors, and brokers, advisors and other intermediaries in all types of M&A transactions, including equity and asset acquisitions, product line/divisional divestitures, tender offers, leveraged buyouts, proxy/control contests, joint ventures and strategic alliances.

Clients include manufacturers and processing companies, professional service and leasing companies, retail and franchise operations, life sciences, health care, financial institutions and technology businesses. The firm also provides services in the areas of public and private offerings of equity and debt, private fund formation, redemption and recapitalization transactions, re-incorporations, and secured and unsecured financings.
