Ogletree Deakins, one of the largest labor and employment law firms representing management, has launched a Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group in response to growing client demand for legal assistance with the wide-ranging labor and employment issues that can arise during corporate acquisitions and restructurings. The lawyers in the practice group—led by shareholders Kevin Kinney (Milwaukee), Diana Nehro (International Practice Group), and Jonathan Wilson (Dallas)—have years of experience advising U.S. and international clients of all sizes across a wide range of industries, including private equity, technology, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and financial services.
Ogletree Deakins’ Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group is a multidisciplinary team of lawyers with extensive experience in corporate development who understand the employment law issues in divestitures, asset purchases, stock transactions, and mergers, and have multidisciplinary experience that adds strategic value to the entire transaction. The lawyers in the Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group handle all aspects of labor and employment law issues that arise from global transactions. They often work in partnership with general practice firms to provide a unique integrated service that recognizes the material issues and business drivers of the transaction, as well as the practical considerations in getting the deal done while complying with the nuances of local laws.
“We are excited to officially launch our Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group,” said Matt Keen, managing shareholder of Ogletree Deakins. “The lawyers in this practice group have years of experience assisting global companies in this area, and formalizing this group will allow them to provide the most effective service to our clients.”
