Mergers & Acquisitions

Jenner & Block represents public and private companies, special committees and other parties in US and cross-border M&A transactions. Those transactions include acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs, MBOs, LBOs, going-private transactions, and reorganizations. We assist our clients in all aspects of M&A transactions — from front-end strategic planning and structuring to managing the deal through execution and closing. We draw on the experience of lawyers from our employee benefits and executive compensation, environmental, government contracts, labor, data privacy and cybersecurity, real estate, and tax practices to provide comprehensive due diligence and integrated transaction structures and advice. Our lawyers have extensive transaction experience in many industries and stay abreast of the current legal environment and market practices. We advise clients in the formation, financing, operation, and restructuring of cross-border joint ventures and strategic alliances, in addition to advising clients on the ongoing governance of joint ventures and applicable exit strategies.
