Wiggin and Dana's Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Practice Group is experienced in handling all aspects of M&A transactions for clients operating in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. We handle all aspects of M&A, providing assistance with structuring and negotiating transactions, and advising on antitrust, securities, tax, labor, employment, environmental, and other matters. We also provide exceptional value to our clients, thanks to the deep experience of our M&A lawyers, their acute business acumen, and their practical approach to acquisition and divestiture work.
Our attorneys are experienced in representing public companies, closely held businesses and their owners, private equity funds and their portfolio companies, and other institutions. We have a historic and ongoing focus on private-target, middle-market deals with transaction value ranging from a few million to several hundred million dollars. We have experience across numerous industries, including biopharma/medical devices, chemicals, computer software/internet, construction/engineering, distribution, financial services, healthcare/healthcare services, manufacturing, media/publications, technology and telecom and utilities industries.
Our work spans mergers, stock and asset purchases and dispositions, and other transactions that transfer business interests, including product-line acquisitions, joint ventures with purchase options, and equity investments with purchase options. When we help acquire or sell public companies, we are equipped to advise on fiduciary issues, securities law compliance, and stockholder matters. We also collaborate closely with other lawyers within the firm to provide an integrated and customized approach, oftentimes drawing upon the firm's experience in tax, real estate, finance, employment, international trade compliance, intellectual property, data security, and other areas for purposes of conducting due diligence and addressing transaction structure and risk.
