Thomas M. Thompson

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC

Thomas M. Thompson has been recognized for his broad legal expertise as a corporate deal maker, as well as his cool, calm, collected demeanor that eases tensions during even the most complicated deals. He works primarily in (1) corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A); (2) corporate governance and counseling; and (3) venture capital and private equity financings.

He was one of the key legal advisors to the mayor and the City of Pittsburgh during the negotiations to keep the Pittsburgh Pirates in the city and during the deal to sell and reorganize the bankrupt Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team to National Hockey League superstar Mario Lemieux.

During a professional career of more than 45 years, Tom has worked with foreign and domestic acquisitions, for buyers and sellers and with both publicly and privately held companies. He has played a lead role in hundreds of acquisitions for a very broad range of businesses, including steel/metals manufacturers, radio stations, banks, investment banking and brokerage firms, accounting firms, vision care, health care providers, insurance companies, retailers, software developers, sports teams, restaurant chains, grocery chains, manufacturers and contractors of HVAC equipment and a ski resort.

Tom is called upon regularly to serve as an expert witness during M&A and corporate governance litigation. He is also a published author who has made many presentations and written extensive materials on mergers and acquisitions, letters of intent and opinion letters.

Clients rely on Tom for outstanding depth and breadth of experience. He has been there and done that and done it all again—without forgetting that each deal is unique. Tom works closely with each client to fully understand the business drivers and “the cast of characters.”

Tom works with a calm self-assurance and a keen sense of proportion that helps build strong rapport on the deal team and maintain cordial communications among all parties.
