Areas of Focus

M&A

In the M&A arena, we represent either side in many transaction types, from traditional bank debt and institutional and non-institutional lenders to corporate/strategic acquirers, private equity, hedge fund, venture capital, angel and other individual investors, and mezzanine lenders/investors. Our team is active in cross-border and cross-ocean transactions, as well as pure domestic transactions. As part of these activities, we handle international tax planning for U.S.-based companies doing or seeking new business outside the U.S. and represent overseas businesses engaged in U.S.-based transactions.
