  • Corporate mergers, recapitalizations, separations and dissolutions

  • Issuance of debt and equity securities
  • Joint ventures
  • Private placements
  • Public offerings
  • Purchase and sale of business assets and equity securities

The legal representation required for mergers and acquisitions requires the fusion of several disciplines: federal and state tax law, securities laws, employment law, antitrust and regulatory issues. Our Business Practice attorneys meld their considerable experiences and strengths to offer our clients exceptional counsel in acquisitions, mergers and dispositions.

Our team of lawyers has a strong practice in the acquisition area, representing both sellers and purchasers of businesses in taxable and nontaxable transactions. In addition, we have a depth of experience in the acquisition and disposition of banks, bank holding companies, insurance companies, savings associations and other financial institutions. These acquisitions and dispositions involved both healthy and in-distress situations.
