Semmes possesses significant experience representing buyers, sellers and their capital providers, as well as investment banks, in all aspects of acquisitions and divestitures. Our corporate attorneys are highly skilled in structuring, negotiating and documenting all forms of M&A related transactions, ranging from relatively simple transfers of family owned businesses, to the most complex forms of international transactions on behalf of large, publicly-held corporations.

By working closely with each client’s senior management, along with their outside financial advisors and auditors, Semmes fosters a team approach for each transaction, with all professionals working together toward a successful and satisfactory closing.

Significant experience with the M&A aspects of U.S. securities laws and the pre-merger notification requirements, coupled with a strong background in tender-offer/takeover litigation matters, enable Semmes to provide a seamless array of legal representation in this area.
