Mergers and Acquisitions

We represent buyers, sellers, investors and advisors in financial service companies purchases and sales, and investment transactions. We have represented a number of banking clients in connection with their bank acquisitions by merger, which typically involve the negotiation of the merger agreement, the preparation and filing of a Form S-4 Registration Statement with the SEC if securities are to be issued in the transaction, and filing of appropriate forms with the OTS, the OCC, the FDIC, the Federal Reserve Board and/or state banking agencies. We also have dealt with these bank regulatory agencies on antitrust issues relating to in-market mergers and similar matters.
