Mergers & Acquisitions


We provide first-rate service and execution on the largest and most innovative mergers and acquisitions transactions in the market.


Clients engage us because of our long history of legal excellence, innovation and creative problem-solving. We provide effective and efficient advice through the lens of the commercial goals of our clients, who rely on our sophisticated judgment and unsurpassed client service in all types of M&A transactions. Above all, our clients engage us because of our track record of getting deals done.

Our M&A lawyers work seamlessly with our lawyers in numerous other practices – including tax, executive compensation, intellectual property and regulatory areas such as antitrust, CFIUS and FCPA – and with our offices around the globe. We have deep experience in negotiating and completing transactions under U.S., English and Hong Kong law.

Together, our teams anticipate and proactively address issues that might otherwise be stumbling blocks to completing a deal, and we provide a complete package of seamless advice across all aspects of a transaction.


“The talent of the Davis Polk M&A team is on a different level. We had complete comfort that our legal team was in complete control of every deal point.”
