Officer

“Being engaged in mergers and acquisitions for several years, my experience in understanding the industry and leading clients through a sometimes unfamiliar process is a key strength. Clients don’t come to us to hear why something is a problem — they come to find a solution.”

Profile

Taylor Hall guides companies through mergers and acquisitions, taking an approach that is engaged in learning the client’s business and seeing each transaction through, from the earliest stages to the post-closing transition. He has represented buyers and sellers in industries including consumer products and retail, building products, long-term care, defense, manufacturing and information technology. His clients have come from businesses private and public, large and small, with transactions ranging into the billions in value.

As markets change, clients frequently look to Taylor’s experience in creating alternative and creative deal structures, helping maximize their strategic and tax benefits. His focus on client service and guidance through what can be an unfamiliar process helps ensure direct communication and attention to business objectives throughout a transaction. And when a company in a highly regulated industry faces complications that can draw out a transaction, Taylor’s knowledge of those issues can help keep the process moving as efficiently as possible.

In addition to his mergers and acquisitions work, Taylor handles matters related to securities, commercial transactions, finance and general corporate counseling. Before joining the firm, he practiced with a large international law firm in Chicago.
