Mergers and Acquisitions

We assist and counsel both publicly traded and privately held clients in connection with various types of mergers and acquisitions transactions and divestitures , including asset purchase transactions, joint ventures, stock purchase transactions, public company mergers, letters of intent and international transactions.

Whenever a client negotiates an acquisition of another business through a merger or other acquisition, we undertake a comprehensive due diligence review of the target company’s business, its principals, operations and finances to help insure that our client gets the full benefit of the purchased assets.  In addition, when representing the seller of a business we insure that our client receives the full value agreed-upon for their business.   We also have experience in winning proxy contests and in setting up poison pill plans and other anti-takeover defenses for publicly traded clients.
