Alan J. Perkins Super Lawyers 2017

Alan Perkins focuses his practice on all types of corporate and securities transactions.  He often represents privately and closely held companies, as well as public companies, private equity firms, and hedge funds in a wide variety of industry sectors throughout the U.S.  His clients typically are middle market companies, and he serves as the lead attorney in approximately ten M&A transactions annually, with enterprise values most often ranging from $30 million to $150 million or more. He also frequently represents Special Committees of Boards of Directors in various matters, and senior executives in connection with employment and severance arrangements.

Alan is consistently recognized as a leading corporate and M&A lawyer by publications such as Chambers USA, which refers to him as “a great business lawyer” who “knows how to get through the issues” and highlights that his clients appreciate his negotiation skills and common-sense approach.  Other publications that have recognized Alan include The Best Lawyers in America.

Alan developed his practical business experience and judgment while working as a young adult for his family’s food service distribution business, and later honed it serving for over 30 years on the Company’s Board. Today, his clients appreciate his candor and responsiveness, as well as his ability to simplify complex issues, find logical solutions and reach mutually beneficial compromises. This skill often results in both principals and lawyers on the opposite side of a transaction referring future matters to him.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
