Our experienced M&A team counsels clients through acquisitions, dispositions and recapitalizations of their businesses and those of their targets. We focus on constructive and creative solutions and a multi-disciplinary approach, to achieve our clients’ objectives and deliver long-term value.

Our Approach

Our clients partner with our firm in connection with critical transactions because they understand that we are focused on developing constructive solutions and offering practical advice with the goal of arriving at closing. Although each transaction is different, our attorneys combine deft legal analysis and judgment with practical business experience, bringing vision and common sense to partner with businesses to achieve their objectives.

Whether we are assisting a client who has built their business from the ground up in finding an opportunity to exit, or facilitating the acquisition of a new portfolio company for an investment fund, we begin by seeking to understand the business, its financial statements and key components of the transaction. Our efficient teams have a depth of knowledge in the M&A field, and we can leverage highly specialized advisors in the fields of tax, accounting, finance, benefits, regulatory compliance, environmental and employment services to resolve outstanding issues. As part of our collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach, we also work closely with our clients’ other business advisors to deliver value and efficiency for our clients.
