Mergers and Acquisitions

Vorys represents public and private companies of all sizes and industries in merger and acquisition transactions throughout the United States and the world.  We have considerable experience in nearly every form of transaction, including:

We advise public companies, middle-market private companies, closely-held and family-owned businesses, and start-up and emerging companies, as well as boards of directors, special committees, financial sponsors, and venture capital firms, in M&A transactions.  Our M&A attorneys represent clients in a broad spectrum of industries, including retail, oil and gas, energy, consumer products, restaurants, manufacturing, insurance, health care, financial institutions, homebuilding, distribution, pharmaceuticals, technology/software, and real estate.  Additionally, members of our M&A team have served as in-house General Counsel at public and private companies.

We represent our clients in all phases of a transaction, from the structuring and planning through the due diligence, negotiation, execution, and implementation of a transaction.  Our M&A attorneys are experienced in leading a transaction and efficiently completing the deal.  Recognizing that each transaction presents unique issues and challenges, our M&A team includes specialists with expertise in tax (including federal, state and local), litigation, employee benefits, labor and employment, environmental, finance, real estate, antitrust, securities, information technology, intellectual property, immigration, corporate governance and compliance, bankruptcy, and regulatory aspects of a transaction.  This integrated team approach enables Vorys to provide the necessary depth of expertise in a cost-effective manner.  We also have considerable experience coordinating with other law firms in a co-counsel or local counsel capacity.
