The following attorney practice Mergers & Acquisitions Law:
What sort of business would be a good merger and acquisition target?
A merger occurs when two businesses combine to form one entity. An acquisition is similar, but it involves one larger entity buying or acquiring a smaller entity. If you want to move into a new line of business or expand your geographic or online footprint, a merger or acquisition might be in order.
What are some aspects of small business mergers and acquisitions?
The business law attorneys at our firm negotiate and prepare letters of intent, conduct due diligence investigations and structure financing arrangements to help you complete the transaction. We also anticipate problems you may encounter in the future and take action to avoid lawsuits. More specifically, we can assist you with:
- Choice of entity. If the merger or acquisition is between two very different types of businesses, such as a corporation and a limited liability company, it is important that the redesigned entity be the most effective governing body possible. We provide knowledgeable advice regarding corporate formations.
- Negotiation and drafting. Both functions are very important. Some lawyers negotiate the agreement but leave the drafting to the other side. We can negotiate the transaction and then memorialize those favorable terms.
- Reorganization and restructuring. We provide good judgment, common sense and a practical approach to the reorganizing and restructuring of your business. We identify potential problems and develop innovative solutions to tackle the toughest issues up front.
- Spinoffs and rollups. A business wishing to streamline its operations often sells less productive or unrelated subsidiary businesses as spinoffs. The spun-off companies are expected to be worth more as independent entities than as parts of a larger business because they appeal to a different market segment. A rollup involves the acquisition of small entities in the same market to reduce costs and increase competitiveness by pooling resources. We provide effective guidance and advice in implementing either of these strategies.
As experienced commercial litigation attorneys, we have the resources and skill to handle your transaction from start to finish.
