Mergers & Acquisitions
Fortis LLP’s Mergers and Acquisitions Practice focuses on representing domestic and international purchasers and sellers, primarily in the middle-market arena. We advise our clients from the pre-acquisition stages of a transaction, including due diligence and preliminary agreements such as letters of intent, through negotiation and documentation of the definitive agreements, retention of key personnel, and satisfaction of closing conditions.
We deliver an organized, value-driven and efficient process that enables the transaction to close on time and on target, while minimizing interruption to operations. Our sell-side clients, ranging from entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses to private equity funds, respect and benefit from our ability to maximize and preserve value through careful structuring of sensible limitations on warranties and post-closing indemnification risks. On the buy side, we represent operating companies seeking to grow market share by consolidation with competitors or to enhance their position by acquiring strategic targets in their supply or distribution chains.
Our M&A attorneys are seasoned professionals with the necessary experience and skill to manage the full range of M&A transactions. We have executed transactions across a diverse range of industries, including manufacturing, apparel, financial services, technology, entertainment, consumer products, and professional services.
