Mergers & Acquisitions Done Deal

Growing companies can get legal advice from many sources. To be successful, however, requires counsel not just on the law but guidance on how to harness key business drivers while still protecting critical interests. With a continual transaction flow on both the buyer and seller sides, we bring efficiency, focus, and a current understanding of the market effects on deal terms and on the timing and process for mergers and acquisitions. We have forged strong client relationships spanning several decades and many transactions.

The Big Picture

We regularly work with large multinationals and maintain a high level of respect for the relationship between in-house counsel and internal stakeholders. Our attorneys provide resources and in-depth experience as needed to support in-house attorneys in fulfilling their mandates. Our transaction teams also understand and address our clients’ underlying tax, accounting, and financial objectives, which often serve as the drivers of deals. Our attorneys are continually engaged in acquisitions and dispositions of all types for private and public entities located around the world. In particular, we handle:

  • Asset Purchases & Sales
  • Stock Purchases & Sales
  • Taxable & Non-Taxable Mergers
  • Leveraged & Management Buyouts
  • Tender Offers for Public Companies
  • Spinoffs of Subsidiaries & Divisions of Companies
  • Auctions or Divestitures of Whole Companies
  • Recapitalizations

Approach

Resourcefulness

Our practice is varied in terms of deal size and industry. To give our clients an extra edge, we work closely with our IP colleagues when intellectual property is central to a deal, and in cross-border deals, we leverage our decades of experience, our European and Asian office locations, as well as our extensive network of correspondent attorneys. As such, we support clients on large acquisition programs in anywhere from 10 to 100 acquisitions, with individual transactions ranging from $900,000 to more than $2.5 billion. Our strong record in securing and closing financing includes secured and unsecured transactions, single lender and syndicated loan facilities, and structured financing, such as asset securitizations related to M&A transactions.
