Team Bio:  MASC (M&A/SEC)

We have extensive experience representing both sellers and buyers of businesses, which allows us to bring efficiency, focus and a high degree of skill to the transaction process.  Our continual transaction flow enables us to retain cutting-edge knowledge of “what is market” in the negotiation of the deal terms and management of the process.  We ensure that our transaction teams understand and address the underlying tax, accounting and financial objectives of our clients, which often drive these transactions.  Since we regularly work with some of the largest global corporations, we respect the relationship between in-house counsel and their internal clients and provide additional resources and in-depth experience as requested to facilitate in-house counsel in fulfilling their mission.

Our attorneys are continually engaged in acquisitions and dispositions of all types for private and public companies located throughout the world.

Our practice is extremely varied in terms of client, deal size and industry.  We provide a unique and distinguishable experience set in transactions with a high intellectual property content, cross-border transactions, leveraged transactions and acquisition programs.
