M&A is a premier practice area of the Firm and our clients value our extensive experience — and the judgment and perspective that comes with that experience — to help them achieve their business imperatives and close their deal. We advise buyers and sellers (both strategic and financial), including closely-held businesses, public companies, and private equity firms, in the evaluation, structuring, financing, negotiation, and documentation of all phases of the purchase or sale and other disposition of businesses and their assets.

From letter of intent and due diligence, to negotiation and drafting of definitive agreements and closing documents, our business lawyers can also provide clients with the advice and counseling resources they need in various deal-related practice areas – including those related to tax, employment, ERISA, executive compensation, and intellectual property.

Our goal is to serve our clients with responsiveness and clear, practical advice so that transactions are completed in a timely, cost-effective manner. If your goal is to close a transaction, that will be our goal as well, with pragmatic attention to risk mitigation, agreement drafting, and a favorable outcome. At Kleinbard, your transaction will be staffed with seasoned attorneys who understand your business and have the experience to focus on and resolve the deal’s critical issues. Whether your transaction takes the form of a purchase or sale of stock or assets, a statutory merger, or an auction led by an investment bank, our business lawyers have the crucial combination of technical expertise to draft the necessary legal documents along with the business judgment to provide the real-world advice and counseling each deal requires.
