Wyatt Tarrant & Combs

Wyatt Tarrant & Combs is one of the largest and oldest law firms in the Southeast US. Founded in 1812, the firm has grown with five offices in Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana. Its clients include growing startups, second and third generation family businesses and some of the country’s largest corporations. The firm’s biggest strength is its merger and acquisition practice.  

The M&A team represents buyers and sellers, management and investors in all types and sizes of transactions, including mergers, tender offers, sales of assets and joint ventures with an emphasis on healthcare. 

Over the research period, the firm worked on a number of significant deals. For example, it served as legal counsel to Hillard Lyons Financial Services, one of the nation’s oldest investment firms headquartered in Kentucky, on its agreement to join Baird Wealth Management. Another interesting mandate saw the firm advising City Gear, a specialty retailer of athletic footwear, on its merger with Hibbett Sport.
