M&A defense

Many organizations seek merger and acquisition opportunities in order to keep pace with shareholders' ever-increasing expectations. We help businesses to recognize the growth and synergies afforded by acquisitions, mergers and divestitures and, at the same time, to avoid potential and hidden liabilities, hurdles to execution and obstacles to integration. Our attorneys provide antitrust counseling and defense in the negotiation, structuring and consummation of mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures.

We are experienced in the filing of pre-merger notifications with the Federal Trade Commission and Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice and in obtaining approval of proposed mergers and acquisitions, as well as in challenging mergers and acquisitions. Our team successfully has resolved dozens of investigations initiated by the federal enforcement agencies and filed hundreds of Hart-Scott-Rodino notifications and report forms.
