Mergers & Acquisitions

Consistently honored for its global M&A capabilities and innovations that distinguish the firm as an industry leader, Mergers & Acquisitions magazine named McGuireWoods M&A Mid-Market “Law Firm of the Year.” The firm earns top rankings in reputable, benchmarking league tables published by Bloomberg, LSEG (formerly Refinitiv) and PitchBook. Chambers USA recognized McGuireWoods for its nationwide M&A practice, and The Legal 500 United States praised the firm for its M&A and private equity deal work.

Such accolades reinforce McGuireWoods’ straightforward approach to M&A: Our attorneys listen to clients to gain a thorough understanding of their objectives for the transaction. We then analyze the competitive and regulatory landscape within client-specific industries — factoring in the influence of current and emerging legislation, regulatory developments and the whole M&A market. Armed with this information, we work with our clients to develop a strategy designed to meet specific business goals, while minimizing disruption to ongoing operations.

McGuireWoods’ M&A team represents buyers and sellers in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures and other major transactions throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim. The firm’s lawyers handle transformative and strategically significant deals for public and private companies in every sector of the economy.

McGuireWoods’ M&A attorneys draw upon the services of the firm’s tax and employee benefits, labor and employment, environmental, real estate, securities and antitrust lawyers, as dictated by a transaction, to ensure firm clients have 360-degree deal coverage.
