Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba’s Mergers & Acquisitions team is an experienced group of individuals, proven in transactions both within the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
We have been a leader in the sales, acquisitions and mergers of local businesses for 30 years and have an institutional understanding of the market and practices for the transfer of regional businesses that is difficult to match.
In addition to our experience in intra-Valley transactions, we frequently represent sellers of local businesses to interests outside of the Valley, including private equity groups and publicly traded corporations. We take particular pride in our ability to navigate the intensity and complexity of large-dollar national transactions while maintaining the values (and cost-effectiveness) of a Lehigh Valley firm.
As a supplement to our service as lead counsel, we also regularly act as local counsel for Pennsylvania’s Fortune 500, national and multinational firms. We are always ready to assist our clients with the regionally based details of large transactions.
The broad range of services offered by FLB contributes to our M&A team’s ability to work efficiently and cooperatively with our other practice areas, including real estate, employment and taxation, to provide appropriate “one-stop shopping” for all of our clients’ M&A needs.
