Corporate Transactions

Over their careers, our professionals have been directly involved in a variety of transactional processes with companies of all sizes and types, including Fortune 100 companies to mid-cap and small-cap companies, whether publicly or privately owned. They have gained their differentiated expertise by completing dozens of transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, leveraged buyouts, restructurings and financings as both investors and advisors. Listed herein are various closed transactions in which members of the LM team participated either at LM or at previous firms. Not included are the dozens of transactional processes that our team has worked on which did not lead to a transaction being closed, most often based on that being the correct decision for ourselves as investors or the right advice for our clients. While those transactions are not part of the public domain and thus cannot be listed here, they have also significantly contributed to our team’s vast experience and acumen.
