Mergers & Acquisitions

PRINT

One of the greatest strengths of our Corporate Department lies in our ability to serve as deal counsel, either on the buy-side or sell-side, in extraordinary transactions for our corporate clients.

We represent clients of all sizes, types and industries in every aspect of mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, recapitalizations, spinoffs, purchases, sales and other divestitures.  These range from purchases and sales of assets or stock, to complex multi-party mergers or reorganizations. Our practice experience also includes leveraged buyouts, earn-outs, split-ups and acquisitions in connection with workouts or bankruptcies, and frequently entails regulatory issues.

The depth and sophistication of the attorneys of our M&A practice reflect the dynamic nature of our clients, which include Fortune 500 companies, private equity funds, and privately-held companies of all different sizes. Our M&A lawyers are regarded as some of the best in the profession, with a solid reputation for excellence and being able to successfully achieve the strategic, financial and business M&A objectives of our clients. We take a multi-disciplinary approach as an integrated team with our clients to address and resolve issues such as antitrust, litigation, intellectual property, tax, labor and benefits, real estate, environment and securities, all as they may relate to an M&A transaction. This collaborative effort with our clients is designed to maximize the value of the underlying deal while minimizing the risks for our clients.

Virtually all M&A transactions require sophisticated tax planning. To provide this critical counsel, our Corporate Law Group works in conjunction with our Tax Group, offering comprehensive counsel through all stages of transactions.

A deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and industries is at the core of our counsel.  This insight is pivotal to successful mergers, acquisitions or other liquidity events. We provide targeted and practical assistance to clients on structuring an M&A transaction for their businesses. We have a solid reputation with our clients as being solution providers for our clients’ M&A objectives and liquidity events.
