Lon & n has long
and wide-ranging experience in the entire gamut of business
reorganizations and takeovers. We have represented bidders,
acquirers, targets, sellers, leveraged buy out promoters,
dealmakers and financial advisors in all types of transactions,
takeovers, exchange offers, leveraged buy-outs, listing
and de-listing transactions and multi-step acquisitions
and sales involving domestic and international participants.
We are adept in handling the acquisition and financing
of public and private companies of any size and combinations
of both. We advise clients on all phases of acquisitions
or sales, both structuring of successful transactions
and resisting takeovers, responding to solicited and
unsolicited acquisition offers and in arranging public
and private financing, be it domestic, foreign, ‘non-resident'
or ‘other corporate body'.

and implementation. We have established multi-country,
multi-funding acquisition structures, formulated and

acquisition plans to address unique situations.
