Pullman & Comley’s Mergers and Acquisitions practice is comprised of experienced attorneys who advise buyers, sellers and investors in a variety of business combination transactions, recapitalizations, leveraged buy-outs, acquisitions and divestitures. Our transactions range from representing closely held companies in small to mid-market deals to representing businesses with sales of $100 million or more.
This client-focused section is fluent in the skills essential to consummating acquisitions and divestitures successfully, including managing due diligence, negotiating letters of intent, term sheets, standstill agreements and definitive deal documents. Our transactional advice and drafting encompasses securities law compliance, tax and business strategy, ancillary stockholder and equity arrangements for executives and related employment, consulting, non-compete, licensing, leasing and business franchise arrangements. We are versed in simultaneously negotiating and closing related financing transactions consisting of senior and mezzanine debt infusions. A member of the section typically acts as the point person for stock and asset acquisitions and sales, managing the process. The practice leverages our firm’s domestic and international tax and business acumen in the planning phase and then brings added value to our clients during implementation with our experience in corporate governance.
