M&A/Corporate Governance

Businesses today face more challenges than ever in pursuing their strategic goals and protecting the interests of their stakeholders. Our mergers & acquisitions practice - ranked among the most active by Corporate Control Alert and other leading publications - delivers responsive and practical solutions in an increasingly complex market.

To compete effectively, companies need legal advisors focused on real world solutions. Our attorneys partner with clients to structure, negotiate and execute a broad array of transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, tender-offers, spinoffs, divestitures and going private transactions. We also handle hostile M&A transactions.

Goodwin Procter’s interdisciplinary legal teams work closely with institutional investors, including hedge funds and other private funds, to help them manage the regulatory aspects of investments in public companies and to evaluate the corporate governance structures of those companies. Our M&A lawyers blend technical know-how, specific industry expertise and practical judgment to ensure deals get done with cost efficiencies in mind.

In addition to our transactional work, we advise clients regularly on a range of corporate governance matters. We work with public and private companies, as well as special committees, on such issues as fiduciary duties, takeover defense, director independence and liability risks. We provide our clients with an informed and practical viewpoint on the shifting trends in corporate governance and proxy proposals.

M&A attorneys collaborate with a firm-wide network of specialists in tax, intellectual property, financial services, buyouts, and real estate investment trusts to help clients assess opportunities, consider a variety of options, and take action in a timely manner.
