Mergers and Acquisitions

PDF

Whether our client is the buyer, the seller, a lender, a security-holder, an employee group, or another interested party, we apply our extensive experience and knowledge in a variety of merger and acquisition transactions, including cash purchases, earn-outs, spinoffs and splitups, and a range of tax-favored reorganizations. Frequently we are asked to consult not only with respect to the technical legal aspects of a merger and acquisition transaction but also with respect to valuation and other business issues. Our extensive expertise in Federal and State taxation can be especially important in this highly complex area, where a seemingly nominal change in the structure of a transaction can have surprising and far-reaching tax consequences.

Understanding our client's business strategy is always a first step in finding legal solutions. Whether helping to choose and execute the right deal structure, or negotiating and closing the deal, our corporate attorneys have dealt with a variety of issues and have played a role in handling the following transactions:
