The mergers and acquisitions practice is one of the signature specialties of the firm. The transactional lawyers at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings stay at the forefront of mergers and acquisitions law to deliver the highest quality representation to our clients. Our attorneys regularly represent publicly-traded and privately-held buyers and sellers in all aspects of M&A transactions, including negotiations of mergers, stock and asset purchases, divestitures, spin-offs, exchange offers, tender offers, proxy contests, management buyouts, leveraged buy-outs, joint ventures, strategic alliances and going-private transactions. Our attorneys are regularly engaged by companies with operations, subsidiaries, and offices throughout the United States and abroad.
Of course, an M&A transaction often requires input and experience in other areas of law. With a firm of over 400 lawyers practicing out of 7 offices from Alabama to Washington, D.C., our M&A team draws from a wealth of attorneys specializing in tax, employee benefits, intellectual property, antitrust, bankruptcy, and banking and public finance, as well as non-transactional areas like environmental, labor & employment, immigration, and federal and state government affairs.
Because we utilize an industry and client team approach, our M&A lawyers are continually focused on business developments in the industries in which our clients compete. As a result, our M&A lawyers have developed deep, industry-specific expertise in fields including health care, healthcare IT, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, construction, research and biotechnology, hardware and software development, just to name a few.
