Mergers and Acquisitions

Clients rely on our M&A team to guide them smoothly through every stage of the often complex transactional process and get the deal done. We know how to uncomplicate the complicated. Additionally, our Mergers and Acquisitions attorneys use creative, state-of-the-art technologies that enable us to respond quickly and efficiently. Clients benefit from our deep collective knowledge and seen-it-all experience because we do this work every day – and we really like what we do. Most importantly, we take the time to get to know our clients and their businesses very well, collaborating closely with them and cultivating long-term relationships. This allows us to tailor transactions strategically to meet their needs, close deals and help them attain their business objectives.

Diverse Client Base Enhances Service Delivery

Drawing on our comprehensive understanding of both the big-picture perspectives and the nuanced details of M&A transactions, our Mergers and Acquisitions attorneys counsel and represent a wide range of clients. They include Fortune 500 corporations that operate internationally; high-profile private equity firms; mid-market, private and publicly traded companies; family-owned businesses and family offices. We represent sellers, buyers, investors, independent director committees, management groups and other participants in M&A transactions across the nation – and our team gives each of our clients our undivided attention. Several of those we serve have told us, “We feel as if we’re your only clients.” We consider that high praise because it validates our way of doing business.
