Known as the firm’s Special Committee & Fairness Opinion Practice, this branch of Peter J. Solomon has advised companies on complex, high-stakes deals such as stock-for-stock mergers, joint ventures, cross-border acquisitions, leveraged recapitalizations, and more. The firm guarantees that it has no business or financial conflicts related to securities research, trading, or ownership.
