Mergers & Acquisitions


Corpus Juris is considered a pioneer in mergers and acquisitions, handling some of the largest and most complex US and global deals for more than three decades.  We are one of the few firms that represent the full spectrum of M&A players in the US and Europe, from major Fortune 500 corporations to private equity firms, investment banks and acquisitive hedge funds, as well as investors and hedge funds investing in distressed situations.

We frequently advise acquirers and targets, special committees, audit committees, and boards of directors in complex negotiated and contested situations, including negotiated mergers, hostile takeovers and takeover defense, proxy contests and financial adviser representations, and restructuring transactions.

Our experience also comprises cross-border transactions, strategic alliances, joint ventures, spin-offs, dispositions, tender offers, public to private transactions, as well as corporate governance issues.

As needed, our M&A attorneys work closely with counterparts in antitrust, benefits and compensation, environmental law, takeovers and proxy fight litigation, and tax.
