Geographic location and scale for cost-efficient deal execution

Our staffing models, office locations, philosophy, and flexibility in structuring client relationships and fees allow us to create solutions designed to drive business value to our clients.

Our team of 200+ corporate attorneys close more than 150 private equity, venture capital, and angel financing transactions annually and, in recent years, have handled more than 160 mergers and acquisitions with deal values ranging from $10 million to $1 billion. Our experience extends to securities offerings, SEC reports, NASDAQ & NYSE listings and compliance. We work with you on buy and sell-side transactions, carve-outs, private equity buy-outs, roll-ups, and spin-offs, meeting your specific needs in every deal.

M&A for clients across industry sectors

Middle market transactions are different from the deals that make the front page of the Wall Street Journal--our team understands the difference.

We take a practical approach, focusing on what’s important for each transaction with a balance of appropriate senior-level attention and efficient staffing.

Our attorneys have experience across industry sectors, including banking and financial services, FinTech, business services, consumer products, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing and distribution, media, pharmaceuticals, retail, social media, software, technology, telecommunications, and transportation.

We also have buy-side and sell-side experience. We have long-term private equity and strategic clients who ask to help them make multiple platform and add-on acquisitions, and we help entrepreneurs and families sell their businesses in the transaction of a lifetime.
