As a long-time M&A professional representing both sellers and buyers of lower middle market companies, I have introduced Marc Empey to several clients and closed five (5) transactions with him . Marc is a top shelf transaction attorney representing both public and private companies. Marc is not only a highly experienced and effective M&A attorney, he also brings brings particular expertise to corporate transactions that include real property and/or environmental challenges. Unlike many attorneys at larger firms that often "over-bill" to support large staffs and high operating overhead , Marc is always very fair with his billing - a feature that my clients have always appreciated a great deal. I would highly recommend Marc to any company in need of buy-side or sell side legal counsel.
Marc Empey provided excellent and detailed service when I merged my company with another entity.
His commitment to detail was most impressive as well as protecting his main concern, his client.
I was referred to Marc when I nearing the end of my search to buy a small software company. Marc jumped right in with me and gave me a quick education on the fundamentals, as well as more advanced concepts necessary in this area since this was my first endeavor away from the corporate world. He exhibited great patience when the first deal fell through, and gave me encouragement and a few new tips to think through as I went after my next couple of opportunities. Marc was there every step of the way from that point forward in executing the purchase order agreement, along with a series of schedules protecting me on intellectual property, setting up my LLC, getting licensed in the appropriate state, etc. In the end, the legal costs expectation that Marc put in front of me were very fair, and actually came in under where they easily could have gone since I had a false start before executing my eventual deal.
Marc Empey is a seasoned attorney, thoroughly knowledgeable of our industry and a pleasure to work with. He provided my company with specific and responsive advice that helped us make productive business decisions.
I met Marc across the table on a deal over 20 years ago. By the end of that transaction I had hired him to work on our transactions. As an aggressive acquirer, our firm closed over 1000 acquisitions over a 15 yr period and Marc was the attorney of record on the majority of them . He is bright, quick to grasp concepts, thoughtful in his presentation of issues and extremely responsive...which is a key component in a competitive environment. He is also very easy going and friendly to all parties in a deal environment. Willing to go the extra mile and work crazy hours when it is required.
Marc’s knowledge and accessibility makes my job easier and worry free. When I need a quick response and/or a meeting with him, he is instantly available and his insights are right on. Every question that arises is quickly responded to. Marc and the staff at Slovak Baron Empey Murphy & Pinkney have treated me both professionally and as a member of their “family.” I highly recommend Marc and the Firm.
