The Charlotte office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate to join its Mergers and Acquisitions and Energy Transactional Department.
Consistently honored for its global M&A capabilities and innovations that distinguish the firm as an industry leader, Mergers and Acquisitions magazine recently named McGuireWoods M&A Mid-Market “Law Firm of the Year.” The firm ranks among the top five for M&A in Bloomberg’s and Thomson Reuters’ benchmarking league tables; Chambers USA recognized McGuireWoods for its nationwide M&A practice; and The Legal 500 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.
