Mergers & Acquisitions
Pillsbury helped guide Chevron through the landmark $18.1 billion acquisition of Unocal Corporation, described by Fortune as "the most politicized takeover battle in U.S. history." Our lawyers regularly handle acquisitions and dispositions of companies, business lines and plants in the oil and gas, chemical, power generation and distribution, and natural resources industries. Our experience includes acting for buyers, sellers and advisors in a large number of utility M&A transactions, including three cross-border acquisitions of U.S. utilities by non-U.S. companies. We also represent participants in asset sales and restructurings in the power industry. Transaction scope ranges from middle-market to multibillion dollar transactions between public companies.
