Mergers & Acquisitions

Our mergers and acquisitions lawyers regularly represent public and private companies of all sizes, private equity investors, special committees, financial advisors and other parties in all types of U.S. and cross-border M&A activities, including acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs, MBOs, LBOs, going-private transactions and reorganizations.  These representations include both friendly and contested acquisitions, tender offers and defensive planning.

We assist our clients in all aspects of M&A transactions – from front-end strategic planning and structuring to managing the deal process through successful execution and closing.  Our corporate attorneys work closely with attorneys from our environmental, ERISA and executive compensation, government contracts, labor, privacy and data security, real estate, tax and other regulatory groups to provide comprehensive due diligence and integrated transaction structures.  Our lawyers have extensive and varied transaction experience and up-to-date knowledge of the ever-changing regulatory, legal, tax, accounting and business issues impacting our clients in these transactions.
