At a certain point, an M&A deal can become so fraught with seemingly intractable issues that one might wonder if or how it will ever come together, especially on a tight timeline. It is at this moment that I excel for the benefit of my clients. I have an innate ability and comfort level with “quarterbacking” even the most complex deals, making sure that everything keeps moving forward and none of the balls we are all juggling as a team ever hit the ground.
Hayden Baker is a corporate attorney who focuses his practice primarily on mergers and acquisitions, as well as banking and capital markets. He regularly represents buyers and sellers in connection with both strategic and private equity-backed acquisitions and dispositions across a wide range of industries, including health care and manufacturing.
M&A deals often touch upon many different specialty practice areas, and Hayden works effectively with firm colleagues and specialists, receiving and incorporating their input, while continuing to focus intently on the core corporate details and nuances.
Hayden takes the time to understand a client’s business, but also understands what business means to a client. “Corporate transactions can be stressful, and—in the case of a sale, for example—often represent the conclusion of a lifetime’s worth of hope and hard work,” he explains. “It is my goal that my competence can serve as a source of reassurance, as I guide our clients through and to a worthy resolution.”
