There’s an art to auto industry transactions — we call it adding value

Suppliers, OEMs and equity investors need legal counsel that combines in-depth industry knowledge with the finesse to craft mergers and acquisitions in ways that mitigate risk and maximize opportunity.

We have helped negotiate and structure complex transactions up and down the auto supply chain for decades — e.g., negotiating joint ventures between family-owned suppliers and large tiers; establishing U.S. subsidiaries for foreign suppliers; and assisting clients with acquisitions and divestitures.

No matter which side of the deal we are on, we dig deep and ask the right questions to ensure our clients’ best interests are achieved. From the purchase price, to payment terms, representations and warranties, and covenants, our experienced automotive M&A attorneys efficiently navigate negotiations, ensuring critical issues are explored and resolved.
