About Thomas F. Lamprecht

In the fast-paced world of mergers and acquisitions (M&A), Tom Lamprecht uses his market knowledge to help clients resolve complex issues swiftly. He frequently advises private equity firms in platform acquisitions and exits. Public companies, family offices, independent sponsors and family-owned businesses also turn to him for his M&A experience, his knack for clear communication, his commercial approach and his responsiveness.

A "user-friendly" M&A attorney with a broad skill set

No matter the size of the transaction, mergers and acquisitions can be complicated. For family businesses and other clients that don't buy and sell companies every day, Tom distills technical details into plain English, providing a clear picture of the deal and its goals.

In addition to his M&A experience, Tom maintains a broad corporate practice, including family office investing, public company reporting obligations, SPACs, corporate governance, joint ventures and venture capital. As a former certified public accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, he can work with the most sophisticated clients on technical accounting issues and financial arrangements.

Tom's responsiveness and ability to make deal terms easy for clients to understand makes him a "user-friendly" M&A attorney. Another quality that endears him to clients is the way he meets deadlines — even short ones. For a for-profit educator, he sold multiple schools located in different countries in just three months, demonstrating his ability to deliver in tight time frames.

He is also familiar with the unique dynamics that arise in the sale of family businesses, a factor that comes into play often in his deals. That not only helps him in representing family businesses, but also when representing counterparties like private equity sponsors. Sometimes, their mutual goal is to continue working together after the transaction, with family members in a management role. Whatever the vision for a specific deal, Tom's grounded approach allows both parties to walk away feeling positive about the experience and set up well for the future.

Tom began his career with an international law firm in New York.
