ESOP Transactions


Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs)—at inception, termination and on an on-going basis—require expertise in a wide range of legal specialties. Our ESOP lawyers are an inter-disciplinary team from across the country with access to a deep bench of more than 1,000 MWE lawyers experienced in corporate law, corporate finance, environmental law, securities regulation, lending, litigation, labor and employment law, real estate, estate planning, tax planning, and related areas. We address all aspects of ESOP transactions and on-going ESOP administrative compliance, as well as required fiduciary analysis and review. Our group has been engaged to provide counsel in some of the largest ESOP transactions that have occurred in the last decade, and continues to provide guidance for a wide variety of clients on a full range of situations and across multiple industries.
