Mergers & Acquisitions and Joint Ventures

ELG’s mergers and acquisitions lawyers are aggressive, practical, and forward thinking in strategy and negotiations. With our extensive big law firm experience, we look around the corners for clients to identify and avoid potential issues that can arise long after the closing. We represent clients engaged in asset or stock purchases, mergers, joint ventures, strategic partnerships and leveraged buy-outs. Our lawyers advise companies that are preparing to enter the M&A market, offer guidance on transaction structure, draft and review term sheets and letters of intent, advise on and perform due diligence review, negotiate and draft documentation and assist with post-closing integration. Our attorneys have represented clients in transactions ranging in size from several million to hundreds of millions of dollars.

Our M&A attorneys work with buyers to focus on the key elements of value to be derived through a potential acquisition. Our analysis then guides negotiations, documentation and due diligence for a process that is as fast, efficient and cost-effective as possible. Our goal is to ensure that the buyer has the opportunity to become well-informed regarding the acquisition target and is pursuing a negotiation strategy designed to protect against downside risk and realize on expectations.

Our work with sellers includes long-term strategic planning, advising on alternative opportunities and transaction structures, vigorous negotiation, and careful documentation of deal terms as well as disclosure items. This is intended to achieve the best possible results and maximum realization of objectives for our clients.
