She is also regularly selected to the New Jersey Super Lawyers list in the Mergers & Acquisitions category. Her practice is principally transactional, with a concentration in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance and compliance, leveraged leasing, corporate, and compensation counseling. She handles a wide variety of business transactions, including U.S. and foreign multi-party acquisitions, divestitures, and financings. Ms. Halchak also has significant experience counseling public and private companies, and their Boards of Directors, on governance and regulatory matters, and structuring compensation packages including tax-deferral structures, equity and equity-based incentive plans, and other benefit plans, and executive and employer protections on a change of control.

Ms. Halchak has an extensive practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, leveraged leasing and divestitures, representing a diverse range of domestic and international clients from early stage and mid-size to larger multi-nationals. She has significant experience leading multi-disciplinary attorney and business teams in structuring, negotiating, and closing these complex business transactions. In some cases, the clients engaged in these transactions are the same clients that Ms. Halchak has counseled for many years on all aspects of their businesses. She is highly respected for her in-depth understanding of each client’s business model and strategy. This makes her a critical player in each of these transactions from their early stages through the post-closing integration process.
