Mergers and Acquisitions
When seeking growth through merger or acquisition, clients need to be aware of a myriad of different risks, particularly in complex or regulated industries. These risks include not only government regulation and taxation liabilities, but risks associated with bringing together different work cultures, including key employee retention and intellectual property protection. Our M&A practice includes negotiated and hostile acquisitions; merging of equals; joint ventures; stock exchanges; distressed asset purchases; management buy-outs; going private transactions, special committee, and fairness opinions.
