Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Overview
  • Attorneys & Professionals
  • Updates, News & Presentations

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.

Our M&A attorneys have an outstanding reputation, both regionally and nationally, as knowledgeable, experienced transactional counsel. We 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

The ability to bring the experience and perspective of more than 50 transactional attorneys positions us to handle a large number of deals each year and our Wisconsin footprint allows us to deliver national expertise at smaller market rates. By combining the resources of our transactional attorneys with numerous other specialty practices within our firm, we are able to apply a practical, commonsense approach that allows us to complete transactions successfully and efficiently.

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 numerous 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.
