Mergers and Acquisitions

Unlike most lawyers, Weinberg Gonser attorneys have started, operated, financed, purchased and sold their own businesses.

As a result, we are especially well-known for personally supporting and guiding business owners through all aspects of their first-time liquidity events and post-event planning.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing banks, private equity funds, businesses and individuals on both the buy and sell sides in connection with mergers and acquisitions, including stock and asset purchases, recapitalizations, divestitures and tax-free reorganizations.

Let us put that experience to work for you.
