Overview

Dentons’ Corporate/M&A practice represents both publicly traded and private clients and has particular strength in highly regulated sectors, including manufacturing, energy, health care and financial services. Our work encompasses a variety of service areas, from entity formations and mergers and acquisitions to serving as outside general counsel on day-to-day corporate matters, including financing and other commercial transactions and corporate governance to ensuring that the client maintains the benefits of the big law firm model by drawing on our intellectual property, litigation, tax, labor and employment, and executive compensation practices. We represent numerous multinational and Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, and private companies, and with its nationwide and the Firm’s global reach, Dentons' US Corporate team presents the total picture—market deal terms, valuation trends, intellectual property and technological concerns, regulatory hurdles, policy shifts, industry challenges and more.

Our lawyers work closely with clients to develop solutions that strengthen their competitiveness and lead to new business opportunities. And while our work for a client may start with corporate acquisition, that typically turns into multiple acquisitions and related work, such as deal finance, deepening our knowledge of its wants and needs, making us better able to help further their long-term growth plans.
