Within: M&A: middle-market (sub-$500m)

Squire Patton Boggs' corporate M&A practice regularly advises on domestic and multi-jurisdictional transactions spanning a broad array of key industries, including automotive, aviation, diversified industrials and chemicals, as well as financial and business services, food and beverage, and consumer brands. Lincoln Electric, Lassonde Industries, Meritor and Valvoline are regular clients. In Cleveland, Daniel Berick, the Americas chair of the global corporate practice and co-head of the global family office team, acted for the Japan-based Asahi Glass Company in the acquisition of Park Electrochemical's electronics business; Cipriano Beredo advised Lassonde Industries, a Canadian agri-food company, on its $146m acquisition of Old Orchard Brands, a family-owned juice and beverage company; and Laura Nemeth assisted global IT company Enea on its acquisition of software developer Openwave Mobility. Elsewhere, Phoenix's Matthew Holman led advice to Engenavis, which designs and manufactures energy storage batteries, on a complex, cross-border M&A transaction whereby Engenavis amalgamated with a Swiss company and contemporaneously closed a new credit facility and acquired an Italian target company; Columbus-based Donald Hughes advised Core Molding Technologies, through two newly formed acquisition subsidiaries, on its acquisition of Horizon Plastics International and certain of its affiliates; and James Hsu, who divides his time between Los Angeles, Beijing and Shanghai, acted for Huabao International, as majority equity owner, in the merger of its portfolio company VMR Products with JUUL, a Delaware company that manufactures and promotes e-cigarettes. Also key to the practice are managing partner of the New York office Carolyn Buller, Cleveland office managing partner Michele Connell, Frank Placenti and Jaime Daddona in Phoenix, David Zagore in Cleveland, and Cincinnati-based Edward Steiner and Toby Merchant. Wayne Bradley and Ann-Marie McGaughey were hired in Atlanta from Dentons.
