We invite you to view our 2016 Mergers & Acquisitions Year in Review below. We look forward to another exciting year for our clients and will continue to work hard to provide them with outstanding results.

Our corporate and securities attorneys have an outstanding reputation, both regionally and nationally, as knowledgeable, experienced transactional counsel. Our attorneys have substantial experience in advising companies, management teams, investment bankers, lenders, private equity firms and other sources of capital on the legal, business and financial issues relating to a variety of transactions including:

  • Asset and stock acquisitions and divestitures
  • Strategic mergers
  • Recapitalizations, refinancings and other types of corporate restructurings
  • Leveraged and management buyouts
  • Ownership transition and management succession plans

Our attorneys are frequently asked to counsel and lead transactions that fall outside of more commonly known structures, such as strategic alliances or joint ventures. The ability to bring the experience and perspective we have gathered across a wide array of transactions make our corporate attorneys key members of the team to manage risk for our clients. Whether they are routine acquisitions or unique business events, we bring the depth and breadth of experience to complete these unique business transactions.

In our transactional practice, we regularly represent companies ranging from small, family-owned and privately held businesses to public, middle market and Fortune 500 companies across a wide range of industries. We are often retained to represent individuals and management teams, angel investors, venture capitalists, private equity and mezzanine funds and other financial buyers in structuring and negotiating their purchases, sales and strategic investments and alliances. We also have extensive contacts with an array of institutions that can provide equity, mezzanine and senior financing and with regional and national investment banking and accounting firms that can facilitate transactions. We have found these contacts are often extremely valuable to our clients and provide our attorneys with the comprehensive resources that are necessary to direct and complete these complex transactions.

We are business-oriented attorneys who use a practical, commonsense approach to ensure that transactions are completed successfully and in a timely manner after the legal risks are identified clearly and managed carefully and efficiently. We understand that excellent transactional advocacy does not stop at identifying problems and risks, but instead draws on wide experience and an interdisciplinary approach to offer creative solutions. Thus, we use a coordinated, integrated and efficient approach to handling the various corporate, tax, finance, antitrust, real estate, environmental, intellectual property, labor, employee benefits and other issues arising in these complex transactions. We also have close relationships with law firms in many foreign jurisdictions, particularly those where our clients are active, which we leverage in our cross-boarder transactional work.
