About

Provided by Lathrop GPM

When a company is selling, acquiring, or divesting of a business, or responding to a hostile corporate takeover, hiring experienced and effective legal counsel is paramount. Quite often, the company’s success or even its very survival is contingent on the ability to swiftly and successfully conclude the deal.

Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures involve many areas of law, such as tax, antitrust, employee benefits, environmental, employment, and secured transactions. Gray Plant Mooty applies a team-based approach, which brings to each transaction a core group of legal professionals with the appropriate expertise. By augmenting our expertise with sound business judgment and strategic negotiation skills, we effectively guide our clients through complex transactions.

Gray Plant Mooty’s Mergers & Acquisitions team has vast experience representing public and private companies in a variety of mergers and acquisitions transactions, ranging from modest amounts to more than $1 billion in value. These transactions involve both domestic and international companies, including foreign-based buyers and sellers, as well as private equity firms, individuals, and management teams. Regardless of the size of the transaction or the industry, we bring depth and breadth of experience to every deal.
