Practice Leaders

Our international Mergers & Acquisitions team offers strong industry experience in biotechnology, health care, e-commerce, communications, software development, and basic manufacturing, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the capital markets affecting these industry groups.

As a leading firm representing many of the world's major companies in their mergers, acquisitions and dispositions, we have established a depth of experience few firms can match.

Our team has handled many transactions including sales of stock, reorganizations, sales of assets, and mergers for cash, common stock, preferred stock, convertibles, or notes. We have negotiated earnouts, delayed payouts, escrows, cash-stock elections, and many other variations, both taxable and tax-free. Our attorneys have worked on leveraged buyouts, representing management, stockholders, asset-based lenders and financial intermediaries.

A related group of activity involves takeovers, contested tender offers and proxy fights. In all of these areas, we have represented both targets and acquiring companies.
