The Raleigh office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate to join its Mergers & Acquisitions and Corporate Transactions Department.
McGuireWoods advises private equity funds and those doing business with them, including institutional investors, independent sponsors, family offices, investment advisers, lenders and portfolio companies. 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 and the top 10 private equity law firms in the world for the number of mid-market PE transactions it handles annually; 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 the mergers, acquisitions, divestures, joint ventures and other major transactions throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim. Over the past five years, we have represented more than 100 private equity funds and their portfolio companies, each with nuanced needs. The firm’s lawyers handle transformative and strategically significant deals for public and private companies in every sector of the economy.
