Mergers and Acquisitions

Our M&A experience is as extensive as it is varied, both in the size and complexity of the transactions
we handle for our clients. The acquisition and disposition transactions our attorneys conduct for many
small to large companies have ranged in size from $100,000 to $500 million. The knowledge and
perspective our attorneys have gained from more than thousands of these transactions, as well as
the depth of our team, enable us to provide sophisticated, timely and cost-effective representation
across the gamut of M&A transactions.

Our representation covers various types of participants in M&A transactions, including public and private
buyers and sellers, special committees of boards of directors, venture capital and private equity funds,
financial advisors and senior and subordinated lenders. Such breadth enables us to effectively address
the issues and perform the services related to diverse corporate structures, negotiations, due diligence,
documentation, SEC compliance and other aspects of M&A transactions.
