Growing companies don’t just need lawyers - they need strategic business advisors who possess an understanding of key business drivers and are equipped with the focus and skill necessary to protect their clients’ best interests.

Our business model is based on forging strong client relationships which span many years and many transactions. We are particularly proud that our corporate clients frequently ask us to assist them in transactions that represent fundamental turning points in the life of the company – and that our relationship often continues even beyond these events.

We have extensive experience representing both sellers and buyers of businesses, which allows us to bring efficiency, focus and a high degree of skill to the transaction process. Our continual transaction flow enables us to retain cutting-edge knowledge of “what is market” in the negotiation of the deal terms and management of the process. We ensure that our transaction teams understand and address the underlying tax, accounting and financial objectives of our clients, which often drive these transactions. Since we regularly work with some of the largest global corporations, we respect the relationship between in-house counsel and their internal clients, providing additional resources and in-depth experience as requested to facilitate in-house counsel in fulfilling their mission.

Our attorneys are continually engaged in acquisitions and dispositions of all types, for private and public companies located throughout the world, involving:

  • Asset purchases and sales
  • Stock purchases and sales
  • Taxable and non-taxable mergers
  • Leveraged and management buy-outs
  • Tender offers for public companies
  • Spin-offs of subsidiaries or divisions of companies
  • Auctions or divestitures of entire companies
  • Recapitalizations

Our practice is extremely varied in terms of client, deal size and industry. We provide a unique and distinguishable experience set in transactions with a high intellectual property content, cross-border transactions, leveraged transactions and acquisition programs.

Acquisitions Programs

We help companies embark on large acquisition programs. We create form agreements and processes to guide the acquisition program. In the past, we have assisted our clients with anywhere from 10 to 100 acquisitions, with individual transactions ranging from $900,000 to more than $2.5 billion.
