Buying or selling a business is just as complex as running one, so achieving your goals depends on a mergers and acquisitions (M&A) legal team that is consistently recognized for its depth and experience.
With more than 30 lawyers, the M&A group at Farris is relied upon by clients and other law firms to assist with a wide range of transactions, across a variety of industries.
Delivering on our clients’ goals and ambitions, means working closely with our clients to develop work plans tailored to their particular needs in terms of scope and budget. We regularly advise on privately-negotiated transactions, controlled auctions, plans of arrangement and take-over bids.
Our integrated and multidisciplinary approach to mergers and acquisitions means that transactions are completed efficiently and effectively. By collaborating with lawyers in the labour and employment, intellectual property, litigation, banking and real estate groups, we can ensure that key areas of risk or concern in any M&A transaction are handled thoroughly and expertly.
Industries covered by our M&A group reflect the economies within which we work and include manufacturing, consumer packaged goods, utilities, technology, financial services, professional services, transportation and logistics. As virtually all of these industries are cross-border in nature, our lawyers are comfortable working with and opposite M&A lawyers from around the world.
