Because mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures involve specialties ranging from taxation and antitrust to employment and environmental law, Gray Plant Mooty takes a team-based approach to our work with you. Our Mergers & Acquisitions team has experience with hundreds of transactions, from modest amounts to over $1 billion in value. Many of these involve both domestic and international companies, including foreign-based buyers or sellers. Regardless of the size of the transaction or the company, Gray Plant Mooty clients benefit from our depth and breadth of experience.

Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures involve many areas of law, such as tax, antitrust, employee benefits, environmental, employment, finance, securities, and secured transactions. Gray Plant Mooty applies a team-based, multi-disciplinary approach, which brings to each transaction a core group of legal professionals with the appropriate expertise. By augmenting our expertise with sound business judgment and strategic negotiation skills, we effectively guide our clients through complex transactions. We also pride ourselves on staffing M&A matters efficiently and effectively, bringing you the best value in legal advice for M&A transactions.

If you are selling a business, we work with you to plan, negotiate a price, analyze tax consequences, and structure the sale advantageously. If you are buying a business, our attorneys help you identify opportunities, steer clear of problems, and comply with government regulations. If you are facing a hostile takeover attempt, we use creative defense mechanisms to help you achieve your goals.
