Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestitures

Greensfelder has an extremely active merger and acquisition practice. Our multi-disciplinary approach towards business transactions is especially well suited for acquisition and divestiture transactions. We have represented both buyers and sellers in significant transactions, some in excess of $1 billion. At the same time, we maintain our efficiency in representing buyers and sellers of moderately sized businesses. Our mergers and acquisitions practice has included publicly traded and private corporations, and has encompassed a variety of industries, including food, pharmaceutical, health, manufacturing, importing, media and professional service industries throughout the United States and in several foreign countries.

The attorneys in our mergers and acquisitions group understand the motivations of both buyers and sellers, thereby enabling us to advise our client regarding the structure and documentation of the transaction in a manner that is consistent with our client's goals. Drawing upon our considerable experience in mergers and acquisitions, we provide assistance to purchasers and sellers in all aspects of the transaction, including the financial, tax, securities, risk avoidance, intellectual property and financing aspects of the acquisition or divestiture. Working as part of a team of professionals representing the seller or buyer, we help assure the congruency of the client's financial, operational, tax, and personal planning goals with the structure and documentation of the transaction.

We also advise our clients with respect to various forms of acquisitions and divestitures. Such creative structures of transactions have included management buy-outs, acquisitions and sales to ESOP's, and sale transactions related to spin-offs. We have also assisted our clients with respect to creative forms of acquisition financing, including venture capital, mezzanine and equity financing relating to the acquisition or sale.
