For decades, business owners, executives and investors have turned to Munsch Hardt for expert advice and counsel related to the acquisition or disposition of mature businesses and their assets. Although we represent multi-billion dollar conglomerates and other large business enterprises, our emphasis in transactional matters is on the middle-market – primarily private companies at various stages of growth, conducting transactions valued between $10 MM and $500 MM. This frequently leads to negotiating multistate, cross-border transactions on both the buy and sell side.
Our attorneys are experienced in guiding deals through virtually any transaction or financing structure your company may wish to pursue, including:
- Defensive planning and restructuring
- Friendly and hostile takeovers, including advice on fiduciary duties in takeover situations
- Going private transactions
- Joint ventures and strategic business combinations
- Leveraged buyouts
- PIPE transactions
- Recapitalizations, and significant corporate investments
- Stock sales and purchases
- Tender offers
From deal inception to business integration, our attorneys provide start to finish assistance with structuring, negotiating and closing the deal. This traditionally includes managing a focused and efficient due diligence process, drafting and negotiating letters of intent, definitive agreements, proxy statements and ancillary documents, such as employment and non-compete agreements.
We pride ourselves on being more than just attorneys; we are business advisors. Our clients can expect to work directly with an experienced attorney who remains hands-on all the way through the closing process. Because we have special expertise serving emerging growth and established companies in the middle-market, we understand the need for cost-effectiveness and flexibility. Our teams include the right number of lawyers with the right experience at a total cost that is significantly less than that of national or international law firms.
