Demonstrating the breadth of our industries served, CMM’s M&A team recently closed a deal in the performing arts space, representing our client in the sale of her dance studio. The innovative studio, a staple of the community for decades, specializes in various styles of dance including tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and contemporary. The Suffolk County-based dance school brought their classes to Zoom during the pandemic and left a hybrid model in place after reopening for in-person classes, seeking to bring the art of dance to clients in a variety of settings.

CMM’s team, led by Partner Don Rassiger, worked diligently to push the deal to closing despite pandemic-related delays and a last-minute issue regarding the client’s PPP loan. Associate Ashley Tibett was instrumental in supporting and guiding our client through the process and successfully closing the deal. The sale will allow the business to remain an important part of the local community for generations to come.

Innovative businesses need innovative lawyers, and the successful sale of the dance studio demonstrates CMM’s versatility and experience in handling M&A transactions across a wide variety of industries. Call us at (631) 738-9100 for guidance on your next sale, purchase, or restructuring.
