Overview


A defined, dynamic M&A strategy is critical to stay competitive in the global marketplace. McDermott’s M&A practice combines its market knowledge and deal execution skills to help clients achieve their transactional strategies. Our M&A practice is consistently recognized by major industry publications. We are listed as Band 1 – M&A Middle Market in The Legal 500 USA, including being named “Team of the Year for M&A Mid-Market” in 2014, as well as being ranked “Highly Regarded” by Chambers USA. We also routinely rank in Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and Mergermarket league tables for deal volume.

Our business-minded lawyers have substantial experience in all forms of M&A. We advise on negotiated and unsolicited acquisitions in a wide variety of contexts, including competitive auctions, exclusive negotiations, tax-driven transactions and cross-border deals. We frequently act for serial buyers and sellers of companies, reflecting our long-standing client relationships. And from decades representing a diverse client base—publicly listed companies, multinational corporations, privately held and family-owned businesses, private equity, family offices, investment banks and institutional investors—we can quickly identify and anticipate different deal perspectives to ensure the proper M&A strategy is deployed.
