Our strong M&A practice combines legal advice on transaction structuring, negotiation support, documentation drafting and financings. We represent buyers, sellers, investment funds, private equity and venture capital firms in complex mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs and business dispositions.

We have an even distribution of buy-side and sell-side clients in the M&A practice. On sell-side support, we are focused on helping our clients to develop the best strategy for maximizing their equity value. We understand the needs of our clients and work with them to make the best use of their resources for a value adding transaction support.

On the buy-side, we represent strategic buyers, investment funds, private equity firms, venture capital funds and financial lenders in due diligence reviews, antitrust clearance and transaction negotiation and support.

Our over two decades of M&A experience covers every aspect of corporate, intellectual property, employment, real estate, litigation and tax risks. We have been involved in many small to mid-cap transactions as well as in high-profile sophisticated transactions.

A representative list of industry areas we have served includes financial services, insurance, energy, utilities, infrastructure, telecommunications, education, automotive, pharmaceuticals, hospitals, real estate, leisure, restaurants and media.
