Terrence R. Allen

Terrence R. Allen is a member of the firm’s corporate practice and focuses on mergers and acquisitions and other complex transactions.

Mr. Allen has more than two decades of experience representing private equity funds, public and private companies, and leading entrepreneurs in their most important and sophisticated transactions, including public and private mergers, asset acquisitions and dispositions (including “carve-out” transactions), joint ventures and venture capital investments. He has extensive experience advising on initial and secondary equity offerings, debt financings, corporate reorganizations and leveraged recapitalizations. Mr. Allen also advises clients on corporate governance and disclosure matters.

Mr. Allen has conducted extensive market research relating to private M&A transactions. In 2003, he conceived and led the development of one of the earliest and most comprehensive "deal points" studies to achieve circulation in the marketplace. The study involved the analysis of more than 250 acquisition agreements pertaining to closed private M&A transactions in more than two dozen industries to determine the prevalence of approximately 70 different provisions often included in these agreements. More recently, he conceived and led an exhaustive and groundbreaking study of indemnity claims in private M&A transactions. Drawing from this extensive research, Mr. Allen is a frequent lecturer on indemnification and related private M&A practice topics.

Mr. Allen also served as an editor of the Lexis-Nexis M&A Practice Guide.
