Mergers & Acquisitions

The Securities Group represents both buyers and sellers in connection with public company mergers and acquisitions. We have helped our clients evaluate, structure and complete:

  • stock and asset purchases and sales
  • cash mergers
  • stock mergers
  • tender offers
  • going-private transactions
  • leveraged buy-outs
  • divisional sales
  • reorganizations and recapitalizations
  • US and cross-border transactions

We advise companies, as well as special committees of directors, on their fiduciary duties, particularly in connection with buy-outs, going-private transactions and the implementation of defensive measures.

Depending on the scope and complexity of a transaction, our M&A teams engage the expertise and resources of Farella Braun + Martel's other practice groups  including tax, employee benefits and employment law, antitrust, intellectual property, environmental, land use and real estate.
