Mergers and Acquisitions

Consistently handling many of the largest transactions in the State of Arkansas, Mitchell Williams brings experience, skill, and focused client service to every deal.  Our M&A team helps guide transactions from a letter of intent to the closing, contributing to each step in the process an in-depth understanding of complex legal matters, local markets and industry-specific issues.  When other skills are needed, our team draws on the resources of a full-service firm to provide the tax, employment, regulatory, and litigation pieces that a successful transaction sometimes requires. 
Whether your deal is just big enough to turn your family business into a retirement nest egg, or so big that it must navigate a complicated maze of antitrust and securities laws, it is important to you.  And that makes it important to us.

In some recent transactions that we have handled:

  • A publicly traded bank holding company completed a series of acquisitions, which included the largest bank merger in Arkansas history.
  • An electric cooperative purchased a 1600 megawatt gas-fired electric generation plant.
  • A privately held transportation company acquired towing, barge and terminal facilities on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System.
