Mergers & Acquisitions

Finn Dixon & Herling was the only firm named by Chambers USA 2020 to its top tier, “Band 1”, for Corporate/M&A law firms in Connecticut. We have been in the top tier for seventeen straight years. We represent a diverse and extensive base of clients in a wide range of M&A activity, including:

  • Buyout and other private equity firms (including venture funds, hedge funds, family offices and independent sponsors) and their portfolio companies
  • Operating companies, both public and private, in connection with strategic acquisitions and divestitures
  • Management teams acquiring divisions being spun out of larger organizations as well as acquisitions of entire companies

Our M&A team is regularly involved in leveraged acquisitions, mergers, spin-offs, "roll-up" transactions, recapitalizations, cross-border transactions, joint ventures, Section 363 transactions under the Bankruptcy Code, and other strategic alliances.

The Finn Dixon & Herling M&A Group works closely with our Bankruptcy and Corporate Reorganizations, Debt Financing, Executive Compensation, Benefits, and Employment, and Tax groups to advise our M&A clients.

Our knowledge and experience has allowed us to serve clients in a broad spectrum of industries, including: financial services/financial technology, retail and consumer products, media and communications, telecommunications, information technology, shipping, food, high tech equipment manufacturing, health care and life science, metals and alloys and mining/aggregates.

A number of recent M&A transactions in which our firm has been lead counsel are listed in Recent Transactions.

Our ability to effectively represent a wide variety of sophisticated clients in these areas is based upon many factors, including structuring advice aimed at optimizing the economics of each transaction, excellent client service, effective and efficient due diligence and responsiveness.
