Mergers & Acquisitions

Our M&A attorneys have extensive experience representing both buyers and sellers in all aspects of M&A practice, including:

  • Asset sales and purchases
  • Stock sales and purchases
  • Mergers and reorganizations
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances

Our clients turn to us for help with structuring transactions, negotiating letters of intent, conducting legal due diligence, preparing purchase and sale agreements, negotiating with opposing counsel, coordinating financing, addressing regulatory compliance, and closing transactions.  Our capabilities are bolstered by the multi-disciplinary legal knowledge of numerous attorneys in the Firm.

We represent both privately-held businesses and public corporations in business acquisitions or consolidation transactions across a wide range of industries, including manufacturing and distribution, chemicals, food, transportation, warehousing and storage, technology, and professional services, among others.

MacElree attorneys provide start-to-finish assistance with completing M&A deals, using the Firm’s full resources for everything from due diligence to tax-efficient deal structures to closing the deal. Whether the buyer is a strategic acquirer or a financial one, and whether the seller is a first-time business owner or a serial entrepreneur, we have what it takes to get the deal done.

Our team’s experience and dedication allows us to compete with large law firms in providing M&A services.  Unlike mega-law firms that use dozens of lawyers and treat every transaction the same as their billion-dollar deals, we understand that our clients need capable legal representation tailored to their particular transaction.  We frequently work opposite national and international law firms in M&A transactions.  Our clients choose us because they find us to be result-oriented and flexible.

More than just attorneys, we are business advisors.  Many of our attorneys are also business owners and Board members, which means that we can put ourselves in the shoes of our business clients and their executives.  This also means that, above all, we are results-oriented. Our attorneys are committed to exceptional client service, and we provide it with common sense, good judgment, and a practical approach to what our clients want.
