With more than 125 attorneys in Maynard Cooper’s Corporate Practice and over 40 focused primarily on mergers and acquisitions, the firm has extensive experience in representing and advising purchasers and sellers of publicly and privately held companies in a wide variety of negotiated transactions, such as mergers, spinoffs, recapitalizations, and leveraged buyouts. We have also been involved in numerous takeover situations, representing acquirers, targets, boards of directors, and board committees. Our attorneys have successfully completed transactions in a variety of industries including banking, insurance services, broker-dealers and investment advisors, manufacturing, distribution services, healthcare, biotechnology, computer hardware and software, technology, telecommunications, agriculture and forestry, and natural resources and mining. These transactions have ranged in size from relatively small deals to transactions involving total consideration in the billions of dollars.

Maynard Cooper’s full-service legal practice affords all of our attorneys expedient access to a broad range and depth of legal expertise. The firm’s corporate attorneys advise clients on all aspects of transactions, and they often call on their partners who concentrate in other specialty areas of the law to provide the full-service that every client expects and deserves. The teams we assemble to handle matters can be as broad, or as limited, as a client’s needs or preferences require. Our team approach allows us to formulate creative solutions to effectively resolve the issues that regularly arise in transactions, including concerns related to federal and state taxes, financing, employee benefits, intellectual property, state corporate laws, federal and state securities laws, labor and employment, real estate, environmental, antitrust, government contracting, and trade regulation. Throughout each phase of the transaction, our attorneys work closely with our clients to effectively and efficiently help them achieve their business goals.
