The decision to buy or sell a business is one of the most important transactions any business ever undertakes. And it comes with a host of legal complexities and uncertainties all along the way, from the start of due diligence until the closing documents are signed.
Our M&A lawyers have handled hundreds of these transactions and regularly advise buyers, sellers, directors, and management on all types of strategic and financial mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. We work with companies of all sizes — public and private, domestic and international, middle market to multinational, across dozens of industries — on tax-free and taxable transactions including:
- Asset and stock transactions
- Leveraged buyouts
- Joint ventures
We bring a practical and creative outlook to mergers and acquisitions transactions, recognizing that our clients have different needs, budgets and goals. Whether it’s a straightforward transaction or a complex, billion-dollar transaction that requires special care, our focus always remains the same: to provide constructive solutions that minimize risk, avoid unnecessary expense, and get the deal closed as efficiently as possible.
Our mergers and acquisitions attorneys are comfortable handling the entire transaction or being part of a larger transaction team that may include in-house counsel and specialty or foreign law firms that clients regularly use.
