Miller Thomson’s Public M&A Group consists of lawyers who advise clients on transactions ranging from business combinations and plans of arrangement to unsolicited, contested or supported take-over bids for companies of all sizes.
Our firm has been involved in a large number of Public M&A transactions, including large and complex transactions involving both domestic and international public companies.
Our specific services include:
- Public tender offers
- Mergers and restructurings
- Acquisitions and divestitures of control blocks
- Going private transactions
- Proxy fights
We are also frequently called upon to counsel target companies, boards of directors, special committees and acquirers in the defence of take-over bids.
Given the complex and varied legal and regulatory issues that arise in such transactions, our Public M&A Group will assemble a multidisciplinary team of lawyers on every transaction, drawing upon our firm’s expertise in other areas of specialty such as tax, competition/antitrust, foreign investment review, and financing, among others.
