Construction & Engineering - Mergers and Acquisitions

While the construction and engineering sector has some big players, there are still plenty of smaller ones making their mark – and attracting investors. Over the last few years, M&A activity in this space has not only picked up, but the size of deals is also increasing.

For firms looking to either buy or sell, understanding the M&A market ‒ and what each side needs out of a deal ‒ is a must. For sellers, that may mean maximizing your company’s value and identifying potential suitors. For buyers, that may involve doing thorough due diligence and ensuring your company and your target’s business undergo a smooth integration.

Osler’s M&A team has extensive experience advising on transactions of all sizes. Our expertise covers tax, competition/antitrust, securities/regulatory, banking & financial services, litigation, pensions, employment/executive compensation and other specialized areas that are key to effecting a successful M&A transaction. With more companies looking for new ways to grow and expand, it is important to work with a team who knows how to provide legal advice that supports your M&A strategy and successful deal execution.
