Sustainability and beyond
The firm you need when it matters most.
As an M&A leader, we handle the largest and most complex domestic and cross-border transactions.
Our teams in New York, Silicon Valley and Washington, DC advise companies, their boards and special committees on a broad range of matters, including public and private M&A, carve-outs, spin-offs, split-offs, joint ventures and strategic alliances. We also advise on private equity and venture capital investments.
We work hand-in-glove with a fully integrated, highly-regarded group of transaction specialists to deliver sophisticated advice on complex matters, comprising antitrust, CFIUS, IP/data, compensation and benefits, tax, finance and M&A litigation disciplines. Our multidisciplinary group has deep experience advising on sensitive matters involving hostile M&A, takeover defense, shareholder activism and other efforts for corporate control, allowing us to proactively and successfully mitigate situations involving active shareholders.
Our US M&A team is an integral part of our global M&A practice, which consistently ranks among the top five firms for global M&A. By tapping into our network of 28 offices around the world with six “Band 1” rankings (including across M&A antitrust and tax), we are well-prepared to help service our clients wherever their businesses take them.
