We work with you to protect the value of your business—and close the deal.

In mergers and acquisitions, timing is everything. Whether you are buying or selling, the pressure is on and closing a deal requires careful navigation of business, legal, and financial issues. Increasingly, cross-border transactions are gaining momentum as a way to reach new customers and markets, presenting additional unique risks and opportunities.


Our Mergers & Acquisitions attorneys understand the importance of practical solutions and keep your unique goals as their north star. Our comprehensive, business-driven approach protects the value of your company by assessing the risks that impact value, and managing to minimize those risks to close the deal. We have a cross-departmental, core team of attorneys across our platform to address virtually every issue arising in a transaction, including tax, real estate, labor and employment, employee benefits, intellectual property, privacy and data security, environmental, and antitrust matters.

Our M&A team applies a constructive and proven approach to a broad range of clients, from public and privately held companies to private equity firms and family-owned businesses, with a sweet spot in middle market transactions. Our clients are in diverse industries such as business services, technology, health care, life sciences, food and beverage, manufacturing and distribution, real estate, and cable/telecommunications. During the last two years, our team has handled more than 200 M&A transactions, capturing the attention of The Legal 500 and other independent sources, which consistently recognize our M&A team for quick response times, a practical approach, and flexibility.

Given our team’s presence and contacts in the US, UK, Europe and Asia, we routinely handle cross-border transactions by providing a central point of contact, leveraging our long-standing and reliable relationships with trusted local lawyers globally where needed. With this model, our focus is to ensure our clients receive top quality advice in every market in an efficient and well-coordinated manner. 


Our M&A team brings the power of Seyfarth’s innovative service delivery resources to bear for agile, transparent, and predictable outcomes from start to finish. Because M&A transactions and investments often do not unfold exactly as planned, our project management capabilities and budgeting tools allow us to recalibrate when necessary and keep the end goal in sight.

Although closing a deal is cause for celebration, often that is when the real work begins. We support your post-merger integration objectives with The Merger Playbook, a comprehensive communication tool and high-impact training program. Tailored to clients’ workplace needs, values, risk factors, and compliance objectives, this tool helps mitigate risk, while serving as a unique springboard for workforce integration and post-merger success.
