Mergers, Acquisitions, and Divestitures

We Are Your Strategic Partner

We are business-minded lawyers with substantial experience in merger, acquisition, and divestiture transactions. Our lawyers advise clients at every stage of the transaction, from evaluating the initial strategy and objectives through negotiations, due diligence, drafting of agreements, closing, and post-closing activities.  We work with clients of all types, ranging from startup to mid-size and larger businesses. We are detail-oriented professionals who analyze commercial transactions from all angles to ensure that our clients are in the best position to take advantage of new opportunities. With decades of collective experience, our practitioners know how to anticipate risks and work with clients to develop creative solutions that best achieve their business objectives.

We Are Practical and Comprehensive

Our lawyers take the time to listen to our clients’ objectives, know our clients’ business and financial goals, and work directly with them to develop practical, cost-effective plans for the transaction at hand. We concentrate on providing our clients with comprehensive strategies and direction relating to acquisitions and divestitures of business entities and business units through stock sales, asset sales, mergers, redemptions, recapitalizations, reorganizations, and other means.  Whether we are advising a client at the initial stages of a deal, negotiating the agreement, or consummating the final transaction, we help balance the legal risks with our clients’ commercial objectives. Our attorneys understand that for a client to achieve long-term success after a merger, acquisition, or divestiture, it is essential that the transaction fully address both the legal considerations and business demands. We view our role as more than just serving as legal advisors, we are counselors who take a business-minded approach to structure deals that position our clients for success in both the short and long-term.
