Corporate Law

Mergers and Acquisitions and Joint Ventures

Our Firm assists public and private sector companies in connection with strategic acquisitions, joint ventures and venture capital financing. Our corporate attorneys have served as counsel to acquiring companies and target corporations in mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations and leveraged buyouts. We also provide counsel to corporate officers and directors regarding their legal obligations and compliance with state and federal regulations.

Because mergers and acquisitions, as well as divestitures, involve diverse specialties, we take a team-based approach to our work with clients. Our mergers and acquisitions team has experience with transactions that range from modest amounts to deals valued at more than $500 million. Many of these transactions involve both domestic and international companies, including foreign-based buyers or sellers. Regardless of the size of the transaction or the company, our clients benefit from our depth and breadth of experience.

When a client is selling a business, we work closely with the client to plan, negotiate a price, analyze corporate tax consequences, and structure a sale advantageously. When a client is buying a business, our attorneys help the client identify opportunities, avoid legal problems, and comply with government regulations.

We augment our expertise with sound business judgment and strategic negotiation skills, guiding our clients smoothly through complex transactions. We also pride ourselves on staffing matters efficiently and effectively.
