Our Mergers and Acquisitions practice involves buying and selling businesses in a wide variety of transactions, including tax-free and taxable mergers, stock and asset acquisitions and dispositions, leveraged buyouts, spin-offs and joint ventures.  We recognize that each client and transaction is different, and work closely with our clients to ensure that the transaction is structured, negotiated and documented to meet the client's goals effectively and efficiently.  Many of our M&A transactions also involve senior debt, mezzanine debt and preferred and common equity transactions in order to finance the transaction.
