MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS & BUSINESS
MERGERS // ACQUISITIONS // BUSINESS LAWYERS
Because of our unique experience advising ATF, TTB, and State Department-regulated clients, we are often engaged as special counsel or deal counsel on mergers and acquisitions and other transactions (including strategic re-organizations).
We routinely work with deal counsel (including major Wall Street and AMLAW100 law firms), adding specialized knowledge to their broader team of tax, employment, intellectual property, and other attorneys.
