Mergers & Acquisitions

Overview

In a changing business environment marked by disruption in nearly every sector, competition for investment opportunities is fierce as companies seek to grow and innovate, to differentiate and compete.

Loeb & Loeb’s M&A team advises clients, from publicly held global corporations to privately held and emerging growth companies, on business combinations, strategic transactions, investments and dispositions in the U.S. and worldwide.

While our lawyers can, and do, handle transactions of all sizes and complexities — from smaller, simpler deals to large, multinational mergers — our sweet spot is serving as a strategic partner and adviser to middle-market companies, both public and private, in the U.S. and abroad.

Our M&A practice crosses borders and industries, drawing upon multidisciplinary resources from throughout the firm. Loeb’s market-leading work in media, entertainment and technology; advertising and promotions; health care; energy; sports and esports; and financial services means we can provide deep industry knowledge and business-savvy guidance for clients in these sectors and many others.

Our customized deal teams bring together sector-specific perspectives supported by subject matter knowledge in tax, capital markets, intellectual property, employee benefits, privacy and data security, regulatory, and compliance, among other areas as needed, to address the unique aspects of each transaction.

With the breadth of experience of a large, multiservice firm and the agility, efficiency and attention of a boutique, we offer integrated, streamlined service to help clients navigate critical issues and structure, negotiate and close transactions that meet their strategic objectives.

Loeb’s M&A team works with clients on:

  • Negotiated transactions involving asset or stock acquisitions or dispositions, mergers, rollups, spinoffs, management and leveraged buyouts, auctions, recapitalizations and reorganizations, joint ventures, and strategic alliances
  • Advice to boards of directors, special committees and other control persons on their fiduciary duties in corporate transactions, including in auction and takeover situations
  • Regulatory compliance, including securities law and antitrust
  • Cross-border transactions — both inbound and outbound acquisitions and dispositions
  • Acquisitions and sales of distressed assets
  • Acquisitions by special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs)

Our representation includes the following activities:

  • Negotiated transactions involving all aspects of asset or stock acquisitions or dispositions, mergers, roll-ups, consent solicitations, spin-offs, management and leveraged buyouts, auctions, recapitalizations and reorganizations, joint ventures, and strategic alliances
  • Corporate takeovers and proxy contests
  • Going-private transactions
  • Advice to boards of directors, special committees and other control persons on their fiduciary duties in corporate transactions, including in auction and takeover situations
  • Regulatory compliance, including securities law disclosure and antitrust compliance
  • Change-of-control transactions

With a global client base, we are well-versed in handling both inbound and outbound acquisitions and divestitures. Our value-added counsel also includes helping clients with acquisition and sale of distressed properties and special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) acquisitions.

Loeb & Loeb’s Mergers and Acquisitions attorneys serve as strategic business advisors, helping clients navigate critical issues and negotiate and structure transactions to their maximum economic benefit. We also counsel businesses at many stages of development, from very young to very mature companies, on day-to-day business and operational matters, partnering with clients to achieve their strategic objectives.

Unlike today’s multilayered mega-firms, our clients receive the close attention of senior-level attorneys who treat every client relationship as a partnership and are committed to adding value to every transaction through highly sophisticated, streamlined service and cross-practice coordination.

Our multidisciplinary team serves clients of all types and sizes, ranging from publicly held multinational corporations to privately held emerging growth companies, with a particular strength in the entertainment and media, Internet and technology, healthcare, energy, and financial services industries.
