Getting the deal done.
Recognized by many.If any firm can lay claim to being among the best merger and acquisition attorneys in the country, it's Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. Recognized by Corporate Counsel as a Go-To Law Firm in Corporate Transactions and Securities (among other categories), just last year our M&A group handled billons of dollars in transactions. Accounts of our deals have been covered in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Daily Deal.
Our M&A lawyers are recognized as The Best Lawyers in America®, America's Leading Business Lawyers by Chambers USA and Corporate Counsel Super Lawyers® among other national recognitions.
We work to facilitate efficient and timely negotiations, due diligence, documentation and conclusions to deals. As a full-service law firm, we are able to put together the right size team and call on colleagues in related practice areas, as necessary. The firm's interdisciplinary approach allows us to provide effective and time-sensitive counsel. When necessary, we have closed large, complex deals in a matter of days.
Complexity — tamed.Buchanan has a flexible approach to M&A deals and a practical, results-oriented "get the deal done" philosophy. We tailor our representation to the specific needs of each client and the circumstances of the transaction — in some instances we act as the quarterback, and in others as a member of the deal team. When deal problems arise, we keep the focus on finding mutually acceptable solutions to bring transactions to successful conclusions.
We have handled complex acquisitions including stock-for-stock mergers, management buyouts, tender offers, proxy contests, cross-border transactions, and divisional purchases and sales. We also represent special committees of boards and advise in contests for control, including hostile bids and proxy contests.
Many of our clients complete more than one transaction in a given year. For serial acquirers, we establish balanced and consistent deal teams that understand the client's business and industry, their goals and objectives, as well as service preferences.
