Making the best deal
As dealmakers, we do not like surprises, but we are prepared for them. We rely on the depth and breadth of our knowledge to understand our clients’ goals and to foresee the direction of the deal and the possible challenges along the way. Knowing that outside factors can cause deals to go awry, we anticipate issues before they arise and plan for the steps we need to take to resolve problems should they occur. When we structure an acquisition, joint venture, or farmout, we do so in a tax-efficient way, while also addressing financing requirements, environmental issues, indemnities and insurance, prospective liabilities, and insolvency contingencies. In other words, we help our clients assess and minimize risk present in their deals in the most cost-effective and forward-looking manner.
Beyond the deal
We think about the long term – well beyond advising on the transaction at hand. While we cannot predict the future, we can give clients an up-to-date perspective on what the latest developments and legislation mean for their business.
