Mergers & Acquisitions

Overview

We represent acquirers and sellers in the structuring, negotiation, documentation, and closing of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, exchanges, and joint ventures. We have the depth to complete large, complex transactions, and the breadth to efficiently complete a high volume of deals, whether small or large.  Following are some examples of our mergers and acquisition transactions:

  • Multiple, complex asset and stock acquisitions by a rapidly growing national broadcaster starting with five stations to now over 250 stations.
  • The sale of 16 television stations for $1.24 billion to five separate buyers in coordinated transactions.
