Mergers & Acquisitions

We are well versed in implementing stock and asset acquisitions, divestitures, and mergers, whether through a leveraged buyout or tax favored spin-off transaction, as well as reorganization transactions. We are experienced in coordinating disposition transactions where there may be a rollup with equity in the acquirer and the associated employment, consulting, or shareholder agreements as part of a larger transaction.

Activities in the merger and acquisition department frequently involve applying our experience in related areas of financing and other corporate disciplines to address all of your business needs.
