Mergers and Acquisitions

Kramer Levin represents buyers and sellers, including financial and strategic acquirers ranging from entrepreneurial startups to large multinationals, in mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies. We focus on the middle market and are exposed to a high volume of M&A deal flow in this market segment, which gives us keen insight into deal terms, conditions and trends.

Operating in small teams of experienced lawyers, we deliver sophisticated services in an efficient manner, enhancing the value proposition for our clients. Our experience representing strategic acquirers includes sustained acquisition programs for BlackRock Inc., Deloitte LLP, Genco Shipping & Trading Ltd., AmTrust Financial Services Inc. and National General Holdings Corp. Our private equity fund clients include Stone Point Capital, Shamrock Capital Advisors, Quad Partners, Atlantic Street Capital, Paine Schwartz Partners and Sentinel Capital Partners, among others. We have developed deep relationships with these clients, enabling us to fully understand their objectives and preferences and help them achieve their goals effectively and efficiently.

We regularly advise our M&A clients regarding:

  • Leveraged buyouts
  • Minority and other noncontrolling investments
  • Cross-border transactions
  • Going-private transactions
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • Shareholder activist campaign-related issues
  • Contests for control

Our team has extensive experience advising insurers on the use of representations and warranties products. We helped develop these products and have gained market-leading knowledge on their strategic use in M&A transactions.

Our M&A lawyers frequently collaborate with lawyers from other departments within the firm who have developed considerable M&A proficiency within their own disciplines. Our litigation department, for example, is often called into M&A matters, as the firm regularly represents clients in heated contests for corporate control.
