Acquisitions, Mergers and Start-Up Activity
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.
Our services include:
- Joint ventures
We also assist in the:
- Creation of U.S. subsidiaries - we counsel Japanese, Chinese, French, German and other Tier suppliers outside the country on the creation of U.S. entities and commencement of operations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
- Selection of sites - we represent OEM and Tier suppliers in the location, acquisition, construction and operations of plants.
We are so invested in advancing the auto industry that we created AutoConnect. This one-day symposium is designed to facilitate discussion on the industry’s most pressing issues while providing a platform for meeting potential buyers and sellers of auto-related companies from around the world.
