Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers, acquisitions, and other major transactions can produce competitive advantages and increase your company’s market strength.

To successfully execute these deals, the Cipriani & Werner Mergers and Acquisitions practice offers every client thorough due diligence and risk assessment, transactional structuring designed to create value, a process for structuring new corporate governance, and the option to receive ongoing support through a range of scalable, high-value legal services.

The M&A team at Cipriani & Werner guides clients step-by-step through each stage of a deal, including due diligence, structuring, negotiation, document preparation, post-transaction transition and post-merger integration. Our lawyers understand the internal and external pressures that clients face throughout a transaction and the industry-specific issues critical to the success of their deal. Understanding the ins and outs of your industry allows us to reduce costs and time, and to work more collaboratively with clients.

Our corporate transactional clients include emerging, middle-market and multinational corporations, as well as a range of market participants including investment banks, lenders, private equity firms and other financial institutions.

The Cipriani & Werner M&A practice handles a variety of transactions and joint ventures, representing clients on both the buy and sell sides of stock purchases, asset purchases, and other forms of acquisitions and divestitures. We can also guide clients through leveraged buyouts and auctions; tender offers and proxy contests for corporate control; regulatory and antitrust guidance; and conduct all forms of corporate due diligence.

We understand that while mergers and acquisitions can be a vehicle for making quick moves in the market, they also contain risks that can threaten even sophisticated companies with strong foundations. We analyze these risks and tailor your transactional strategy accordingly, to ensure the most successful outcome possible for your deal.
