Neil Connolly

Neil Connolly is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s M&A and Corporate Transactions group. He works with clients on a broad range of matters including mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financings and other strategic transactions.

What do you focus on?

I advise buyers, both strategic and financial, and sellers of privately held companies in the acquisition, sale, combination and reorganization of businesses in a broad range of industries—including software and technology, life sciences, food and beverage, health care, consumer products, retail oil and gas and manufacturing.

What do you see on the horizon?

Given recent high profile data breaches, clients need to pay special attention to their organizations’ data security policies during the due diligence phase of transactions to better understand deal risk.
