Mergers & Acquisitions

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, and 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.
