World-class M&A advisory services
M&A transactions, of any size & value, have inherent complexities that need to be distinctly understood and adequately addressed. Experienced legal advice is essential on all M&A transactions and for all clients, ranging from local start-ups to global conglomerates.
Critical to the success of any M&A endeavor is specialized knowledge of the complex and varied legal and regulatory issues that arise in such transactions. Our M&A Group draws on the firm’s expertise in tax, competition/antitrust, foreign investment review, financing, pensions and benefits, employment and labor, intellectual property, real estate, environmental, business immigration, government relations, international trade, and customs. Where required, we can provide extensive restructuring and insolvency experience to address the specific challenges faced by distressed targets. Clients can also rely on our extensive network of legal advisors to attend to any securities or other litigation matters that may arise in hostile situations.
