Our clients are local, regional, national and international and include public and private companies, family-owned businesses of all sizes, professional practices, public charities, hospitals, colleges and universities, private equity and venture capital funds, hedge funds, management groups, shareholders, issuers and lenders. We help structure, negotiate, document and consummate a variety of business combinations and other commercial transactions, including:

  • Management buyouts
  • Shareholder transactions
  • Tender offers
  • Leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations
  • Private and public mergers
  • PIPE transactions
  • IPOs
  • Cash sales
  • Going-private transactions
  • Joint ventures
  • Private equity and venture capital investments
  • Fund formation
  • Asset sales
  • Business combinations and partnerships

Because many corporate transactions touch a myriad of legal practices – tax, intellectual property, employee benefits and labor and employment – we regularly collaborate with our colleagues practicing in those disciplines to ensure our clients receive full-service representation and advice in connection with their mergers or acquisitions. We also collaborate with a client’s in-house counsel, business and management team, financial advisers and others, to maximize efficiency and minimize complications.
