The firm's business lawyers play a significant role in planning and executing mergers and acquisitions, regularly representing both buyers and sellers in M&A transactions for small and mid-market companies, typically ranging in size from one to one hundred million dollars in annual revenues.
With hundreds of years in combined experience executing thousands of transactions alongside and against the country's top firm and deal makers, we have acquired exceptional skills in structuring and negotiating deals from the complex acquisition or merger of large multi-national organizations to the acquisition or sale of a small company.

- auction bids
- executive compensation matters

Our Mergers and Acquisitions practice includes the representation of privately held and public companies, acquirers, targets, acquisition lenders, boards of directors, independent director committees, management buyout groups, financial buyers, private equity firms, subordinated lenders and other equity participants.
Our transaction capabilities are supplemented by our in-house expertise in the areas of tax, patents, trademarks, licensing and other intellectual property, securities, financing, real estate, employment , environmental law, and regulatory matters, such as state utility and banking approvals and federal Hart-Scott-Rodino filings.
