Willkie is consistently ranked among the nation’s leading firms for mergers and acquisitions, representing buyers, sellers, special committees of boards, debt and equity investors and financial advisors in some of the most significant and complex acquisition transactions. Our attorneys advise not only on significant domestic matters, but also on complex cross-border transactions. Our U.S. attorneys work in close cooperation with our European offices, which are, themselves, recognized M&A industry leaders in their respective markets.
Our Mergers & Acquisitions Practice Group includes comprehensive representation for contested takeovers, strategic alliances, management buyouts, leveraged recaps, as well as acquisitions from reorganization proceedings, where we employ the skills and experience of our nationally renowned Business Reorganization and Restructuring Department. We regularly participate in corporate auctions, representing bidders and sellers. These transactions often involve dealing with multiple bidders simultaneously and require extensive coordination and planning.
