Mergers, Acquisitions & Dispositions

Business acquisitions and dispositions, in all its different forms, is a centerpoint of our practice. Our practice is active, deep and diverse, in terms of deal complexity, variety and size. We have counseled clients of all shapes and sizes ,and in numerous markets and industries, on acquisitions, mergers and sale transactions; always with a focus on practical, results-oriented, and efficient assistance, responsive to our clients’ opportunities, challenges and needs.

Our practice in this area includes representation in:

  • Corporate Reorganizations & Restructuring
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Due Diligence Investigations
  • Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances
  • Letters of Intent
  • Leveraged Buyouts
  • Purchase & Sale of Assets
  • Purchase & Sale of Stock/Equity
  • Tender & Exchange Offers

As our clients compete for acquisition or disposition opportunities, we add value by guiding them through the complexities involved in structuring, negotiating and executing these transactions on the most advantageous business and legal terms. Our attorneys are “deal makers”, not impediments, who partner with clients to structure, negotiate, document and close a broad range of transactions, including: mergers, acquisitions and sales of public and private companies; acquisitions, sales, spin-offs and dispositions of assets and business units; joint ventures and strategic alliances; leveraged buyouts and “take private” transactions; international and cross-border transactions; corporate reorganizations and restructurings; and tender and exchange offers. We assist companies ranging in size from “mom and pop” businesses undertaking their first transaction to Fortune 100 companies with established and on-going acquisition programs. As an adjunct to this practice area, we regularly counsel clients in successfully navigating the often complex strategic, legal, tax and business considerations presented acquisitions and dispositions. In this regard, we assist clients in structuring, negotiating and executing arrangements formed for a wide variety of participants and purposes.
