Mergers and Acquisitions
Businesses merge with or acquire other businesses when they believe they will gain a competitive advantage from the transaction. In many cases, the target company has unique assets or trade secrets that would be too costly to acquire or develop from scratch. In other cases, the newly formed entity will gain a much larger share of the market for their product or service offering. Whatever the case, mergers and acquisitions require a thorough vetting process and typically take at least several months to complete.
At Momkus McCluskey LLC, we help clients with all the important steps involved with mergers and acquisitions, including:
- Entity Structure: After assessing the long-term goals of the company and considering all legal, regulatory, personnel and tax considerations, we help you decide which entity will be most advantageous after the acquisition or consolidation is completed.
- Financing: Our financing and lending attorneys negotiate, draft, and review financing documents to ensure that our clients are receiving the most favorable terms and conditions.
- Commercial Contract Drafting and Negotiation: We prepare and review the necessary agreements pertaining to the transaction. These include initial non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), letters of intent, stock and asset purchase agreements, non-compete agreements, employment and consultant agreements, and many others.
- Due Diligence: We perform thorough due diligence to ensure we reach the end goal without any unforeseen issues. This includes risk assessment and management, ensuring regulatory and environmental compliance, determining cash flows, financial and tax planning, and identifying hidden expenses.
Business purchases, mergers, and acquisitions require the cooperation of multiple parties, and when the transaction involves shareholders, those opposed have certain legal rights that must be satisfied to avoid a costly partnership or shareholder dispute. We put our experience to work to fully assess all factors involved in the transaction to guide you to a smooth and successful conclusion.
