Capital Markets

  • Unprecedented volatility and intense regulatory change since the financial crisis have greatly impacted the capital markets sector.

Mergers and Acquisitions

  • M&A is often the quickest, most efficient way for companies to transform their businesses, whether it be through purchasing or divesting products, service lines, technology or supply chains, as well as entering or exiting particular markets. Because of the pressures of globalization, companies around the world will continue to pursue these transactions to remain profitable and innovative regardless of market trends and economic fluctuations.

  • Yet the challenges of these transactions are many, particularly in cross-border deals involving high-growth markets where regulatory environments and business practices vary. Buyers, today are concerned with questions such as, Have we done adequate due diligence? To what extent are we assuming compliance or reputational risk? Can we get merger clearance? Do we have the right deal timetable? Will we be able to effectively integrate the target? Sellers face similar preparation, regulatory and antitrust challenges that require expert counsel.

  • Our lawyers assist our clients through all stages of a transaction, from preparing the business for sale or performing due diligence, to negotiating the purchase agreement, coordinating the closing across multiple jurisdictions, and integrating the operations of the resulting business. From deal inception to business integration, we help clients bridge the gap between aspiration and achievement.
