Mergers and Acquisitions

M&A Attorneys represent corporations and other business entities in strategizing, negotiating, and carrying out transactions in which two or more companies or corporations combine into a single new entity or where one business purchases and absorbs the assets of another.

Mergers and Acquisitions are strategic alliances that can vary in nature. A strategic alliance often will be structured either as an acquisition or as a merger. Acquisitions can be asset purchases, where the buyer purchases the seller's assets, free and clear of any liabilities, or stock purchases, where the buyer purchases the business's stock and actually takes over the business, instead of just buying the assets. A business merger and acquisition, or the "marriage" of two business, shares many characteristics of an asset purchase and a stock purchase, but at the end of the transaction the two businesses are combined as one.
