Mergers & Acquisitions

Transactions are the backbone of any corporate growth strategy. At Mitchell Williams, we understand that every transaction is important to our clients.

Consistently handling many of the largest transactions in the State of Arkansas, we bring experience, skill and focused client service to every deal.  Our dealmakers and M&A attorneys understand that successful transactions take meticulous attention to detail and we 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 additional expertise is needed, our team draws on the sophisticated resources of our full-service firm to provide  tax, employment, intellectual property, regulatory and litigation knowledge needed to address the unexpected and provide comprehensive service for your transactions.

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.

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.
