Glaser Weil has extensive experience working with our clients to navigate the ever complex and fastmoving mergers and acquisitions landscape.

We structure both the overarching framework of the deals and handle the intricate details of both public and private acquisitions, exchange offers and “going private” transactions, as well as various multi-step acquisitions that require restructuring of companies, corporate workouts and other industry-specific transactions. Additionally, the firm has had continued success in achieving valuations in excess of the originally sought sales price.

In the extremely time-sensitive, often volatile world of M&A, our technical know-how and ability to efficiently form cross-disciplinary teams allows our clients to close their deals on time — and within their strategy, needs and goals.
