While our firm is focused on our core Mergers and Acquisitions practice, we have developed additional areas of expertise: corporate law, strategic investments and joint ventures. We concentrate on these areas of our profession, which allows us to handle some of the most complex and demanding matters in these fields.
Mergers and Acquisitions
A leading M&A practice. Kahn Partners founders have handled over 100 mergers & acquisitions, strategic combinations and partnerships, and defining corporate structure changes.
We advise clients on transactions in a variety of industries, and have particular experience in handling M&A transactions for companies in regulated industries where the intersection of business and government requires an integrated strategy for handling the many issues that arise in such transactions. Our M&A experience, coupled with deep industry knowledge, enables us to advise on a wide variety of transactions and to provide comprehensive and innovative solutions to all our clients.
A distinctive value-add in cross border M&A transactions. The setting is when the buyer is established in Europe and acquires a business in the United States, or when a US-based buyer purchases a company in Europe. When we represent the U.S. buyer of a company in Europe, we structure the transaction as we would for a U.S. domestic acquisition and we most often manage to have New York law govern the structure and mechanics, as well as the pre- and post-closing obligations and risks. When we represent a European buyer, we have particular experience at familiarizing the client with U.S. type mergers & acquisitions, and we help our client negotiate and navigate the transaction with the same or better level of confidence and performance than its U.S. counterpart.
We believe that we have an unrivaled ability to level the playing field for our client in what would otherwise be unfamiliar territory.
A corporate practice focused on value-add. Kahn Partners has been successful in helping management and boards navigate critical corporate decision making.
Our deep experience means we regularly handle complex and demanding decision making for our clients and around the world. We counsel management and boards of both public and private companies.
From strategic moves to crisis management, our advice is rooted in a deep understanding of the law and our ability to understand the business reasons for and implications of the corporate decisions that our clients face.
We also have extensive experience in assisting clients in their effort to rationalize and streamline corporate and holding structures, including for example reducing the number of legal entities within a corporate group.
Strategic Investments and Joint Ventures
A significant experience in helping clients keep or increase value in defining changes. One of the particular strengths of Kahn Partners is our ability to address our clients’ evolving strategic needs: from joint ventures to spin offs or changes in our client’s capital, we make our experience available to our clients and help them navigate these often critical changes, while protecting or increasing the value of their enterprise. Our advice is critical to achieve continuity in changes, a goal that is different from that in mergers & acquisitions and is fully understood by our firm.
