Mergers & Acquisitions, Liquidity Transactions


We flexibly scale down for lean early-stage companies, but also scale up for larger M&A exits, with top-tier M&A lawyers leading those deals. Optimal clients do not compete for their attorneys’ attention with billion-dollar capital markets transactions. They have direct access to efficient M&A partners who’ve counselled clients on transactions up to 9-figures in exit size.

A distinguishing characteristic of Optimal’s elite roster of experienced attorneys is the credibility and scalability of our senior expertise. We are not another tiny startup-focused firm built by mid-level associates. 

Our Partners each have over a decade, sometimes multiple decades of experience leading high-stakes transactions within the country’s most elite law firms. Our M&A-focused attorneys have worked on transactions up to 9 and 10-figures in transaction value, including complex cross-border matters.

Our M&A practice includes expertise in:

  • Cash, Stock-Based, or combined acquisitions or asset sales
  • Liquidity transactions for entrepreneurs and employees, including tender offers
  • Buyer-representation in acquiring and integrating assets and companies for strategic growth

We focus on private-company representation, and as a result Optimal clients do not compete for our senior attorneys’ attention with larger public company or capital markets projects. 

With our curated full-service specialist network of other lawyers, many of whom also practice at lean elite boutique practices, we are able to coordinate teams of experts to ensure each transaction receives right-sized and appropriate expertise.
