Bethany Hickey




Bethany focuses her transactional practice on mergers and acquisitions, private equity, growth capital, joint ventures, and confidentiality agreements. 

She serves as a strategic member of many Mintz deal teams, leveraging a broad skill set in all aspects of M&A transactions. Starting at the auction stage, Bethany frequently runs the confidentiality agreement process, having negotiated over a thousand such agreements for a well-known private equity sponsor and overseen several programmatic confidentiality agreement processes, including for private equity firms and family offices. During the negotiation process, Bethany brings experience in several different spaces — private equity (including platform acquisitions and add-on acquisitions), biotech, manufacturing, energy, telecommunications, strategic acquisitions, and others — to anticipate each party’s unique needs.

Bethany was a Mintz Summer Associate in 2012. During law school, Bethany served as an editor for the Boston University Law Review.
