Mergers and Acquisitions / Corporate Finance and Governance
Our business lawyers have handled hundreds of merger and acquisition transactions, both regionally and nationally, ranging from simple succession plans, to complex international transactions, to mergers in excess of $100 million. We represent private equity buyers and other active business acquirers in financial and strategic transactions. Our experience allows us to know the market, and to both educate and counsel clients through the acquisition process, always keeping our client’s goals at the forefront while minimizing risk. We also represent target companies in transactions and other liquidity events. Our expertise includes mergers, joint ventures, strategic alliances, recapitalizations, business divestitures and spin-outs, leveraged buyouts and representation of directors and senior management.
In corporate finance, our business lawyers have expertise in a wide range of transactions, including private equity (including fund formation), private placements, corporate reorganizations, equity compensation, and leveraged and non-leveraged recapitalizations. We have handled many significant financings, ranging from early state debt and equity financings, to mezzanine debt financings, to follow on capital raises for mature companies. In addition to issuers, we commonly represent private equity groups, developers and individual investors in investment transactions.
Our clients often rely on us to act as outside general counsel, calling on us to advise on governance, corporate and general business matters. We work closely with directors and senior management on compliance and strategic matters, helping to navigate the complexities of the law so that our clients can meet their business goals. If a client has an issue or question in an area outside of our expertise, we ensure that our clients are connected with the best counsel for their needs through our network of specialists.
