Mergers & Acquisitions


Our corporate lawyers collectively have over 75 years of M&A experience involving all types of tax-free and taxable strategic and financial mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, including asset and stock transactions, leveraged buyouts, joint ventures and spin-offs.  Our lawyers have represented serial acquirers and one time sellers from virtually every industry in both domestic and international transactions.  Our attorneys have extensive expertise in advising buyers, sellers, directors and management in acquisition and divesture transactions.  We regularly advise private and public companies in M&A transactions, from technology start-ups to middle market companies to multinational corporations. We also handle a wide range of transactions sizes and tailor our services to the needs and budget of the particular transaction.

We bring a practical and creative outlook to M&A transactions and focus on bringing them to closing within budget.  We focus on constructive solutions for clients that advance their transaction goals and avoid unnecessary expense, not just legal analyses of their problems or using a one size fits all approach.   We know how to accommodate simple transactions as well as those that require a significant degree of specialized experience and documentation.  We regularly work with clients with diverse needs and budgets.

We work well with general counsel and in-house legal teams in flexible, shared-responsibility arrangements.   We are comfortable handling an entire project for our clients or being a part of a transaction team including in-house counsel and specialty or foreign law firms that a client may regularly use in a particular legal area.  Our comprehensive experience allows us to determine when it is appropriate to interface with specialists in other areas of the law such as taxation, employment, real estate, antitrust, environmental, and intellectual property.
