Overview
Representative Transactions
News

Merger and acquisition transactions are among the most complex and heated of business arrangements. We have extensive experience in negotiating and completing these transactions, including negotiated and contested mergers, stock and asset purchases, tender and exchange offers, spin-offs, restructurings and acquisitions out of bankruptcy, leveraged buyouts, private equity investments and joint ventures. 

Working together with colleagues in our Tax, Real Estate, Employment, Employee Benefits, Intellectual Property and Business Reorganization groups, we are able to structure, negotiate and complete these complex transactions in the most advantageous manner possible for our clients.  In connection with M&A opportunities, we also provide advice to boards of directors, board committees (including special committees), senior management and shareholders on a wide range of related corporate governance matters, including anti-takeover defenses and proxy contests.

We Understand the Importance of Due Diligence in Mergers & Acquisitions Law

The complex nature of mergers and acquisitions law requires proper due diligence to be certain critical details are not overlooked. When representing the acquirer, we work closely with our clients to establish the right team of experts to review the target company’s existing contractual obligations and other essential agreements, so that our client is fully aware of the material risks involved. We assist clients in their review of outstanding liabilities carried by the target company. Our goal is to help provide an accurate assessment of the target’s key assets.
