Ruberto, Israel & Weiner’s Mergers & Acquisitions Group is committed to closing deals on your terms. We never lose sight of the ultimate goal – strategic, tax-efficient transactions closed on time and on budget. Our deep industry and legal experience allows us to identify, anticipate, and respond to relevant third-party and other collateral issues before they become problems or compromise a deal.


The M&A Group consists of highly experienced transactional lawyers, some of whom are certified public accountants or hold advanced degrees in taxation. For each transaction, we assemble a team led by an M&A partner with extensive relevant experience and supported by appropriate-level associates, paralegals, and administrative staff.

When a transaction demands specialized knowledge and skills, we draw on the abilities of attorneys from other practice areas, including Tax Law, Banking, Finance & Lending, Bankruptcy, Technology, Energy, Employment, and Litigation.

Client Quote
“This is our fourth completed acquisition working with Gary Bubb of RIW. He and his firm are exceptionally responsive in these very time and issue intensive periods and provide very high quality legal services both relating to the acquisition and deal financing along with tax, general corporate, and employment subjects. Our counter parties often retain national firms but our counsel help us keep ball-control, and we find we get consistently superior value out of our engagement. Consequently, Gary has been a key contributor to our success.”
