Mergers & Acquisitions

Western Financial Corporation (“Western”) has a specialization in working with community-based financial institutions and has represented numerous companies on both buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions throughout its history. The deals have included whole bank and branch only acquisitions and sales. We believe that having served on a number of community bank boards provides us with a unique understanding of the challenges that management teams and directors face when contemplating a transaction.

As part of our investment banking services we also provide fairness opinions for both buyers and sellers in M&A transactions as well as for companies issuing securities in secondary offerings.
