Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients involved in all types of mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures and other strategic alliances, with exceptional expertise in private equity, healthcare, and cross-border transactions. They have represented clients, including publicly and privately held companies, as well as private equity funds and hedge funds, involved in merger and acquisition transactions, from large to small and from simple to extremely complex. Their experience includes a wide range of negotiated and contested transactions including: 

  • mergers
  • stock and asset purchases and dispositions
  • spin-offs
  • exchange offers
  • tender offers
  • proxy contests
  • going-private and going dark transactions
  • leveraged buy-outs.

Taking an Interdisciplinary Approach
The firm's acute focus on each client’s unique needs leads them to approach each transaction with an interdisciplinary team of attorneys tailored to the specific transaction, handling the various corporate, securities, intellectual property, litigation, employee benefits, tax, environmental, antitrust, and other issues inherent in mergers and acquisitions. More recently their multidisciplinary teams have made extensive use of their Bankruptcy practice group and Litigation group in work-outs, transactions involving financially distressed companies and in representing chapter 11 debtors and purchasers.
