We understand the significant issues involved in mergers and acquisitions.
Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures are a significant chapter in the life of almost every business. For the company being merged or acquired, it’s important to ensure that maximum value is obtained for the company’s stakeholders. For the acquiring company, it’s important to fully understand the assets and liabilities being acquired and to determine whether there are ways of minimizing potentially unknown risks.
We understand the significant issues involved in mergers and acquisitions. Regardless of whether we represent the buyer or seller, our role is to help clients understand the legal issues and risks involved, to negotiate on behalf of our clients, to provide counsel when complex issues arise, and to prepare the legal documents that may be required. We also provide the legal due diligence required in the case of complex acquisitions, and often work with other external professionals, such as accountants, financial advisors, and environmental consultants.
We have assisted in mergers and acquisitions with respect to companies in broad areas of industry including automobile, real estate, veterinary, materials R&D enterprises and software and other technology.
