Mergers & Acquisitions

We are able to advise and assist our clients on a wide diversity of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) transactions taking place within the boundaries or beyond the boundaries of a particular country (global mergers and acquisitions or cross-border mergers and acquisitions), and this from origination to integration, whether buying or selling a business or investment, in each instance seeking to deliver optimal value for our clients.

We have a vast experience representing companies in negotiated and contested M&A matters in a wide variety of contexts, including competitive auctions, exclusive transactions, club deals, carve-outs and joint ventures. Our lawyers have participated in all types of M&A transactions on a global basis.

We base our approach on the recognition that a modern law firm's value proposition in M&A has moved from a fixation on deal papers and the conduct of ritualistic due diligence to true risk assessment, value-creation through transactional structuring, new governance processes, and the ability to marshal numerous practice disciplines on a seamless and cost-effective basis, frequently in multi-jurisdictional, even global, transactional settings. 

We bring our extensive experience and scalable resources to bear on a real-time, cost-effective basis in the following areas:

  • Negotiated acquisitions and dispositions
  • Strategic mergers of equals
  • Cross-border transactions
  • Take-private transactions
  • Special committee and other independent director representations
  • Unsolicited bids and proxy contests
  • Activist investor defense
  • Takeover defense planning
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances

We offer the full range of legal capabilities necessary to achieve success in your transactions. Whether a transaction gives rise to antitrust review, employee benefits considerations, tax efficient structuring, intellectual property safeguards or other issues, our M&A team benefits from lawyers in our other practice areas with deep experience applying their subject matter knowledge within the context of M&A transactions.
