Lavelle Law, the Schaumburg-based law firm founded in 1989, has announced an expansion of its Business Law practice group that focuses on mergers and acquisitions.

"We have handled mergers and acquisitions, and the buying and selling of businesses for many years," said Managing Partner Ted McGinn. "We have always considered M&A work a part of our business law efforts, but because of our strength in the area, and our ability to offer comprehensive services, we feel it is time to accentuate our offerings to the broader business community."


McGinn notes that because Lavelle has dedicated practice groups in banking, employment, bankruptcy, litigation and tax law, the firm can utilize attorneys with extensive experience in each area to minimize risk and ensure that all aspects of the deal are covered.

"An M&A transaction can come about in a variety of ways, whether it is a management-led buy-out, a roll-up merger by a private equity firm, or one competitor buying another." McGinn said. "What is important is that the deal be structured properly so that impediments to success are identified and addressed."

McGinn mentioned that in recent years Lavelle Law has added attorneys with backgrounds in areas such as securities law and ESOPs, making the firm even more adept at handling complex M&A scenarios.

"When you combine our business, tax and banking acumen with our traditional employment, real estate and litigation teams, we can not only handle the purchase of a business but can then serve as general outside counsel for the surviving entity going forward."

Lavelle Law's main office is in Schaumburg and maintains an additional office in the Chicago Loop. The firm was founded in 1989 as a single attorney practice with an emphasis on tax law. The firm has added more than a dozen practice groups including Estate Planning, Business Law, Banking Law, Litigation, Criminal, Immigration, Divorce and Family Law, Commercial and Residential Real Estate and Law Practice Consulting. The firm has received numerous awards and commendations for their business success, their commitment to ethics, national recognition for their pro bono services, and multiple acknowledgements of the charitable work they do in the local communities.
