Mergers & Acquisitions

Unleashing the Power of Innovative Solutions

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 advising companies, management teams, investment bankers, lenders, private equity firms, and other sources of capital on legal, business, and financial issues relating to a variety of transactions.

Strategic M&A Counsel: Creative Solutions for Complex Transactions

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. Our attorneys 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.

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 specialty practices within our firm, we are able to apply a practical, commonsense approach that allows us to complete transactions successfully and efficiently.

We specialize in transactions that involve:

  • 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

Corporate Transparency Act

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) was enacted as an expansion of federal anti-money laundering laws and became effective on January 1, 2024. The CTA introduces reporting requirements for new and existing companies formed or registered in the U.S., including corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.

What does this mean for your company?
We've put together a comprehensive resource center including who qualifies for an exemption, how to file, and additional resources in navigating this new landscape.
