Mergers & Acquisitions

Our Mergers & Acquisitions practice group represents public and private businesses and individuals in public and private M&A transactions throughout the United States. We have represented clients in transactions ranging in size from under one million dollars to in excess of $3 billion.

Dilworth Paxson’s approach to mergers and acquisitions is to staff transactions leanly, compared to other sophisticated transaction practices. In most cases, a partner will have significant hands-on involvement in the matter and will generally work with only one corporate associate on each transaction. We are able to bring in specialists in tax, employment law, employee benefits, intellectual property, real estate and other areas of law when needed in view of a particular transaction. The attorneys in our M&A practice group also provide the necessary skills in securities laws and financing so that we can complete transactions with minimal “hand offs” to other attorneys in the firm, increasing our efficiency.

Our clients include Fortune 100 companies, non-profit organizations, private equity portfolio companies and closely-held businesses. Their industries include manufacturing, publication, insurance, banking and other services. Regardless of the size or nature of the transaction, we work hard to ensure that our clients’ expectations are consistently exceeded.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
