Shackelford’s corporate lawyers have extensive mergers and acquisitions experience in tax-free and taxable mergers, equity and asset acquisitions and dispositions, auction transactions, leveraged buyouts, spinoffs, joint ventures, and strategic acquisition and divestiture programs. We work closely with clients to conduct due diligence and to structure, negotiate and document transactions in a prompt and efficient manner.
Shackelford routinely advises clients, both on target and acquisition sides, in negotiated and unsolicited transactions. We can advise clients on unfriendly takeovers and defensive tactics and advise boards on dealing with hostile bids.
We counsel both strategic buyers and sellers and private equity investors making and financing leveraged buyouts and other acquisitions or selling portfolio investments and companies. Our M&A team provides customized transaction services to meet each client's unique business needs. We have an extensive group of experienced attorneys available for deals of any size and complexity.
