Mergers & Acquisitions

Buying or selling a business can be a stressful transaction even for the most sophisticated business owners. Our experienced lawyers have helped guide clients through the purchase and sale process as smoothly and on as favorable terms as the transactions allowed. We work closely with the client to understand and achieve what the client needs out of the proposed transaction. Purchases and sales of businesses, (whether in the form of stock transactions, asset sales, mergers or, management buyouts), often involve consideration of complex issues outside of pure "corporate" law, including tax, intellectual property, securities, real estate, anti-trust, labor and ERISA, environmental, bankruptcy, and litigation. Our lawyers are familiar with all such issues and provide comprehensive representation throughout the merger and acquisition process.

Our Business and Finance lawyers provide services in the following areas, among others:
