Overview

We focus on middle-market ($25 million to $500 million deals), plus the occasional $1 billion+ deal. Few firms in Philadelphia can match us in this space. We handle numerous public and private M&A transactions each year, and have a large and growing private equity practice. We also advise on capital raisings, securities offerings, corporate governance, and venture capital.

Our attorneys advise and guide companies through their entire life cycle, from entrepreneurs to startup companies to larger, mature businesses.

Reps and warranties insurance has become increasingly common in M&A deals. We have an advantage over other firms in this space.

Our corporate team has developed strong links to, and receives a regular flow of referrals from, the advisory community of accountants, banks, and corporate finance houses. Working closely with these advisors is often crucial to successfully advising emerging companies.

We have a unique, strong focus in this market on digital media, including gaming, video, and internet/e-commerce. Our clients include global companies and start-ups, and we offer them the full package, including support with data privacy and intellectual property.

Our 20+ partner Philadelphia-based corporate team also has growing capability in Pittsburgh.
