Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestitures

Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures are not for the faint of heart. Whether you’re negotiating a friendly merger or battling a hostile takeover, our attorneys will guide you to your strongest position with a combination of acumen and aggressiveness.

We have represented strategic and financial buyers and sellers in varied mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and other business transactions involving both publicly and privately held companies. Our experience spans a broad range of industries including companies in the manufacturing, chemical, healthcare, pharmaceutical, retail and distribution, and telecommunications sectors.

We have successfully represented US businesses engaged in M&A activity overseas and foreign investors making in-bound investments and acquisitions in the US, including buyers, sellers and operations located in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Mexico and Argentina.

Our attorneys have represented companies, investors, boards of directors, special committees and financial advisors in going private transactions. We have advised corporations, investors and boards of directors regarding anti-takeover defenses, “poison pill” rights plans, standstill agreements, and other similar matters.
