Mergers and Acquisitions/Joint Ventures

The world of M&A can be dauntingly complex, but that very complexity gives our practice its edge in the marketplace. We represent buyers and sellers from all over the world, from entrepreneurial start-ups to large multinationals, with a particular focus on the middle market. Our partners are hands on experts who lead experienced teams in virtually every form of acquisition deal.

We emphasize not just legal acumen, but innovative solutions to seemingly intractable problems. These solutions frequently involve close collaboration with attorneys from other departments within the firm, who have developed considerable M&A expertise within their own disciplines. Our litigation department, for example, is often called into M&A matters, as the firm is regularly tested in heated contests for corporate control.

While our M&A practice is multi-faceted, we often work in the following areas:

  • Acquisitions and sales of public and private companies
  • Acquisitions and dispositions of divisions and business units; asset purchases and dispositions
  • Purchases and sales of minority and controlling stock positions
  • Cross-border transactions
  • Going private transactions
  • Leveraged buyouts
  • Joint ventures
  • Auction transactions (representing both sellers and purchasers)
  • Contests for control
