Mergers & Acquisitions
Connolly Gallagher LLP provides a range of services for all stages of the merger and acquisition process. Our corporate lawyers have represented public and private buyers and sellers, special committees, investment bankers, private equity funds, and individuals in negotiating merger and acquisition transactions.
We can structure and manage a transaction from its inception through the negotiation and drafting processes and counsel our clients with any related matters through the closing of the transaction. Our tremendous depth of specialized knowledge in a wide variety of industry groups greatly enhances our ability to negotiate effectively and achieve desirable results for our clients. Our Firm approach of building industry based teams to handle each transaction creates efficiencies and knowledge sharing that protects our clients’ interests and keeps transactions moving forward.
The Firm’s lawyers can handle the corporate, tax and securities aspects of any acquisition or diverstiture, as well as the most sophisticated due diligence efforts. We also have extensive experience with preparing virtually every ancillary agreement related to these deals, including licensing, escrow, noncompetition, confidentiality and employment agreements.
In connection with our merger and acquisition practice, we also frequently counsel directors on takeover preparedness and our related offensive and defensive strategies.
