Mergers and Acquisitions

An acquisition or divestiture will likely have a substantial impact on you and your company's future.  We believe that employing a small team of skilled mergers and acquisitions counselors with an understanding of business practicalities and deep experience in structuring and closing deals is the right approach to such high-stakes engagements.

Our mergers and acquisitions attorneys have been recognized as leaders in the field, and their decades of experience in complex transactions and sound judgment will help you obtain the best possible outcome.


We routinely counsel clients regarding matters such as:

  • Stock purchases, mergers, tender offers, consolidations and exchanges
  • Board of directors and board committee fiduciary obligations
  • Roll-up transactions
  • Sales of subsidiaries and operating divisions
  • Hart-Scott-Rodino Act compliance

We represent buyers and sellers in a variety of industries, including public and private companies (both closely-held and venture-backed).  We also advise boards of directors, board committees and corporate executives.

*Past results are reported to provide the reader with an indication of the type of transactions we practice. They do not and should not be construed to create an expectation of result in any other transaction, as all transactions are dependent upon their own unique fact situation and applicable law.
