Merger and Acquisition Representation

In an environment of strict confidentiality, our Firm represents both buyers and sellers of businesses in change-of- control transactions. Specifically, we represent clients who wish to sell a company or control thereof, divest a division or subsidiary, acquire a company, or transfer corporate ownership to management. For both sell-side and buy-side assignments, transaction sizes generally range from $10 million to over $500 million.

Thank you for your efforts in our acquisition of Linco-Electromatic, Inc. Due to your hard work, we consummated a transaction that was strategically important to us and fair to both parties.
