Empowering Clients to Succeed in Deal Making

Providing effective representation of our clients in merger and acquisition transactions is a part of our firm’s DNA. Just as consolidation is a part of the fabric of the banking industry, each of our partners has deep experience in both buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions. Our M&A experience spans a wide range of geographies and covers a range of transaction sizes and structures. From a cash acquisition of a small bank by an investor group to a merger of equals between two public companies, there are few transaction structures we have not previously addressed.
Empowering Clients to Succeed in Deal Making


Growth through acquisition is a key strategy employed by banks to combat the challenges of compressed margins and increased operating costs. Our lawyers have experience with a wide variety of transaction structures to allow clients to proceed with confidence.


Selling a bank is a transaction that is often only undertaken once in a banker's career. Our team provides guidance throughout the process to give comfort and assurance that the right steps are being taken to lead to a successful transaction.
