Mergers and Acquisitions, and Transactions

Overview

We also provide due diligence support in general M&A and other corporate transactions. No deal maker wants to buy into a data incident or acquire a data set that it cannot use or that will drag it into years of costly litigation, especially if those issues could have been identified during the due diligence process. Under tight time constraints, we efficiently identify, assess, and quantify risk, negotiate representations and warranties to address concerns and mitigate risk, and provide counsel that helps companies make business decisions at the end of the negotiations. We also conduct Data and Digital Risk Assessments, including with regard to:

  • IT products and services arrangements
  • Vendor and partner agreements
  • Product development (including software and Internet of Things)
  • Data collection, processing, use, retention, destruction, sharing, and transfer
  • Data security
  • International issues
  • Advertising, marketing, and promotions campaigns and techniques
  • CRM programs

Experience

  • Recognized as one of the top law firms for client service, we were named to the 2018 BTI Client Service 30 for the fourth consecutive year.
