In a climate of volatility, regulatory uncertainties and limited funding, M&A transactions can be complex.
Our team has established relationships with investment banks, accounting firms, regulators and lenders to help structure transactions on both the buy and sell side, from a takeover bid—hostile or friendly—to a merger, de-merger or consolidation.
Whether for Fortune 500 and middle-market companies, private equity investors, bidders and targets, financiers and independent board committees—we get the deal done.
We also provide legal advice on:
Competition and antitrust
Leveraged buyouts and management buyouts
Merger control review
Takeovers and tender offers
