Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions present great opportunity for law firms, but also the potential for significant pitfalls. Research and survey studies conducted over decades show that more than half of mergers and acquisitions fail.  In our experience, many failures are attributable to shortfalls in execution and inadequate due diligence.

Our team also brings extensive experience in core areas, such as finance and accounting, information technology, operations, human resources and compliance.
