Corporate Transactions and M&A

We have extensive experience in all aspects of financial institution strategic transactions for virtually all types of state and federal stock and mutual institutions, as both seller and buyer, including:

In fact, Vorys ranked 7th nationally in the number of financial institution M&A transactions in 2013, according to SNL Financial. Vorys was the only Ohio-based law firm ranked in the top 20.

We also serve as underwriter and placement agent counsel for regional and national investment bankers in public and private debt and equity offerings.

Our involvement ranges from strategizing with client management and boards in early planning through analysis of strategic alternatives, identification of transaction parties, due diligence, negotiations, documentation, shareholder and regulatory approvals, employment issues, transaction consummation and post-closing integration issues.  Our extensive experience allows us to effectively and efficiently address transaction matters in a practical fashion, understanding the business issues and imperatives driving the transaction and maintaining a strong focus on the ultimate goal of achieving the transaction while representing the interests of our client.
