Delivering The Results You Deserve
CMF has a combined 75+ years of experience in representing clients in corporate transactions, and business and commercial disputes. Our team has significant experience in all phases of litigation in federal and state courts, as well as arbitration forums, from the initiation of the action through trial.  With offices in Manhattan, Long Island and Beverly Hills, the firm reflects the sophistication of the business and financial capital of the world, New York City. Our committed and skilled attorneys represent a broad client base including individuals, start-ups, small and mid-sized private companies, public companies, brokers, broker-dealers, private equity firms and hedge funds.

We have extensive experience representing public and private companies in M&A transactions. As a result, our attorneys are adept not only in structuring, negotiating and documenting M&A transactions, but also in addressing the federal and state securities law compliance aspects of such transactions. We also guide our listed company clients in complying with stock exchange listing rules related to M&A. We excel in complex long range M&A planning for our clients, many of whom engage us for successive M&A transactions that prove critical to their growth plans. In addition to representing constituent entities in M&A transactions, we have the expertise and experience needed to represent investment banks in the preparation of fairness opinions for M&A transactions.
