We have advised on and helped clients successfully close several billion dollars worth of M&A transactions. M&A clients have ranged from some of the largest publicly traded technology and life science companies in the world to startups going through an early exit or acquihire scenario.
Our team members have worked on M&A transactions on the buy-side for clients such as Oracle, Dell, eBay, Applied Materials, Disney, Alibaba, Adobe and Gilead Sciences, and have represented countless companies on the sell-side in their transactions against the likes of Dropbox, Twitter, Samsung, Apple, Roche and Zimmer Biomet.
Types of M&A assignments we’ve routinely tackled include buy-side acquisitions and due diligence investigations, sell-side advisory work, asset sales, cross-border transactions, divestitures, spinoffs, joint ventures and post-closing integration assistance.
“The board of directors engaged BSV to work on the sale of the company – drafting and negotiating deal documents, working with management to organize detailed exhibits and agreement schedules, and assisting with the diligence process. I found BSV to be highly efficient, pragmatic and easy to work with and they were of great support to me in the negotiation process. Their careful and diligent work allowed us to close the transaction cleanly and on schedule.”
“Aaron from BSV was terrific to work with. From the beginning it was clear we were working with an expert who knows how to navigate the complex legal process of an M&A transaction. His up to date knowledge of market terms helped in critical moments during the negotiation. He was always responsive, well organized, and focused on the critical issues. The direct interaction with him and him alone allowed us to move through the transaction swiftly and cost effectively.”
“We engaged Aaron from BSV to represent our company when it was recently acquired. We selected BSV because of its reputation for having deep tech M&A experience and for being cost-effective. Throughout the process BSV was extremely responsive, took the time to ensure we were informed during the entire process, helped to set our expectations for each stage of the acquisition and even took the time to have those tough chats at pivotal moments when we just needed someone we could trust. I would wholeheartedly recommend Aaron and BSV to any founder going through the M&A process.”
“BSV was extremely helpful during the deal process. The BSV attorneys were available for questions at all times, which was very helpful during a stressful period. Aaron's knowledge of market standards helped us find a baseline for the deal, and we always felt like we were in good hands. The entire team was professional and responsive, and they moved heaven and earth to get our deal done in a narrow window. I would wholeheartedly recommend BSV to other first-time founders and teams who are going through an exit.”
