Overview

Burns represented Fay, Spofford & Thorndike (FST) in multiple successful merger and acquistion transactions leading up to – and including – the company’s acquisition by Stantec Consulting in October 2015. A multi-disciplinary civil engineering firm with nearly 300 employees throughout the Northeast, FST has played a major role in many of the region’s largest and most challenging infrastructure projects.

We worked with the company’s executives to support their strategic growth plans. Our team provided effective and timely legal counsel in connection with FST’s acquisitions, which allowed it to further expand its technical and geographic capabilities. When Stantec expressed interest in acquiring FST, we guided our client throughout the negotiation and due diligence process, assisting the company’s leaders and shareholders to complete a successful transaction and usher in a new chapter for FST and its employees.
