McDermott Will & Emery


McDermott Will & Emery is a leading international firm with a diversified business practice. Currently numbering more than 1,100 lawyers, we have more than 20 offices worldwide and a strategic alliance with MWE China Law Offices in Shanghai. Our Firm has more than 80 years of experience serving a broad range of client interests. We understand how economic, social and political issues affect operations because our lawyers have navigated the complex business and regulatory environment themselves.

Our Private Equity practice advises leading private equity and venture capital funds, corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises, and start-up companies on buy-outs (MBOs and LBOs), venture capital, mergers & acquisitions (M&A), (re)financing, re-capitalization and restructuring, as well as in connection with initial public offerings. Our clients can count on our expertise in many related fields, such as equity participation of executives, setting up of funds, early- and late-stage investments, securities and stock market law (e.g. regarding disclosure requirements) or intellectual property law.

We advise our clients during all phases of a transaction, including on corporate and tax structuring, acquisition financing and in due diligence reviews, as well as in the negotiation of purchase agreements and the equity participation of senior management. This also includes providing counseling during the implementation of the transaction as well as with merger clearance procedures. The scope of our experience ranges from discrete direct negotiations to auctions and public takeover bids for the acquisition of publicity listed companies.
