Sullivan & Worcester’s Mergers & Acquisitions Group represents companies and investors across a broad spectrum of industries in connection with business combination and collaboration transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs, buyouts, co-investments, joint ventures, restructurings and recapitalizations, strategic alliances and other corporate transactions. For public corporations, private companies, private equity investors and their portfolio companies, family owned businesses and start-ups alike, we have handled countless transactions ranging from the straightforward to the highly complex. Our lawyers bring the sophistication and experience necessary to navigate high-stakes transactions, as well as the complexities of cross-border investments.

To ensure deals are managed efficiently, our team leaders collaborate with clients and their in-house legal departments to deploy the resources of the firm most effectively in light of the client’s objectives and budget goals and the risk-profile of the deal. Our team-lead approach fosters continuity in the working relationship and helps establish at the outset clear workstreams and project management solutions to move the deal through closing. To help control costs, we work with clients to make smart decisions about when to rely on the client’s in-house capabilities and where to leverage our more specialized practices, including tax, finance, real estate, capital markets, intellectual property, employment, environmental, bankruptcy and litigation.
