Mini-Tender Offers

We have the leading legal practice for mini-tender offers, both defensively and offensively.

Practice Group Leader: Evan Hudson


Mini-tender offers have been around for a long time. Only more recently have they become an institutional strategy in their own right. And we are the only law firm in the country with a practice group dedicated to this burgeoning area.

We boast years of experience in this “niche within a niche” of the capital markets. Our practice is experienced with both the defense and the offense.

Critically, we “know the law cold.” We know our client’s rights, and work vigorously to enforce them. We can be as cooperative or as adversarial as the situation warrants—based on our client’s desires and the behavior of the other parties involved.

On the defense, we advise on:

  • public responses

  • communications with stockholders

  • engagement with the SEC

  • mini-tender “poison pills”

  • countermeasures, both regulatory and commercial

On the offense, we advise on:

  • ethical practices

  • legal rights of our client and other stakeholders

  • potential “win-win” outcomes

  • risk assessment and mitigation

  • countermeasure engagement

Mini-tender offers raise sensitive securities law issues. Getting it wrong can invite major problems. For this reason, both bidders and targets need experienced, ethical and assertive advisors on their side.
