Mergers & Acquisitions
Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen regularly counsels clients in the area of mergers and acquisitions. Our Firm’s attorneys provide comprehensive legal services respecting stock and asset sales and acquisitions, recapitalizations, divestitures, leveraged buyouts, credit financing, private placements, workouts, private equity and venture capital transactions, and joint venture relationships.
The Firm often employs a team approach in any such representation, both within the Firm where attorneys in related practice areas are available to provide guidance respecting identified transaction concerns, and outside the Firm where our attorneys maintain established relationships in the finance, investment banking, private equity, accounting, insurance, valuation, and other professional support service communities.
Our M&A lawyers are experienced in handling small, mid-level, and large transactions, in a wide spectrum of industries and markets. Our Firm’s practice group is able to assist clients from deal initiation through due diligence, negotiations, documentation, and transaction closing, as well as with any post-closing matters. Our attorneys understand that minimizing taxes, balancing and mitigating risk, and maximizing overall transaction value are important benchmarks in any deal based representation.
