“Establishing and maintaining long-term relationships with my clients is critical to achieving their goals. I put myself in their shoes and offer practical solutions to the issues that come up at all stages of a transaction.”
A partner in the Corporate + Transactions Practice Group, Mitch Karsch leads mergers and acquisitions, U.S. and cross-border transactions, and new business formations. He also provides guidance on day-to-day corporate matters. Mitch represents clients ranging from large multinational companies to established smaller companies and new and emerging entities in the marketing communications, media and technology industries.
In handling a strategic acquisition, advising on an exit strategy, or structuring a shareholder agreement or a business operating framework, Mitch works as a partner and an advisor to his clients. He helps them identify and leverage opportunities and overcome challenges in ways that position them for success. As a result, many clients have trusted him with their most important business matters for decades.
In every deal, Mitch collaborates with his clients to establish their goals and a strategy to achieve them. He raises red flags when issues arise, resolves problems along the way and gets deals done. Whether representing an immense marketing and media company in a multibillion-dollar transaction or an emerging entity in a time-sensitive cross-border acquisition, Mitch gets to the heart of the issues quickly, delivers practical advice and proposes solutions that resonate with his clients.
With extensive cross-border transactions experience, particularly in Latin America, Mitch brings uncommon insight to assessing a deal’s merits and obstacles, sidestepping potential cultural issues and devising the best strategy to advance the client’s objectives. His insights often prove critical in navigating the transaction process and advising whether a client should take a deal or walk away. Regardless of the complexity of the transaction or location of the parties, Mitch provides valuable clarity and perspective on corporate matters.
