Joe Medved Profiled on Trends in M&A for 2010


Lathrop Gage attorney Joe Medved (Corporate & General Business - Kansas City) was featured on Law 360 with commentary on trends for the new year in transactional law. Law 360's Corporate Finance publication on January 5 highlighted his expertise with a series of questions and answers on the field.

"There is a growing amount of activity in international M&A," said Mr. Medved, who chairs the firm's business division. "In addition, we think that clients are beginning to take a different approach when hiring transactional lawyers — to think outside the traditional roster of the big, New York-based firms that have brought with them rates higher than those of Midwestern law firms. "

Mr. Medved specializes in mergers and acquisitions; corporate finance; and business transactions. He has represented clients in numerous transactions in mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance, including asset purchases and sales, stock purchases and sales, mergers, joint ventures, bank financings, tender offers, public and private stock offerings, and public and private debt offerings. He is also engaged in a broad corporate and business practice.
