Mergers & Acquisitions

Whether your company is considering acquiring another company or is a being acquired, our attorneys can advise you throughout the process.  We have experience with mergers and acquisitions of businesses in a wide range of industries, including software, intellectual property, bio-technology, telecom, natural resources, commercial real estate, energy, professional services and manufacturing.  We represent both public and private companies. Our attorneys can assist with negotiating terms, structure of a new entity and financing. Our services in this area include mergers, asset purchases, and share purchases, and we can help with specifics such as structuring earn out arrangements, escrow terms, and indemnification clauses.  The transaction may involve all cash consideration, all equity consideration, or a mixture.  Any transaction also triggers employment, non-compete and non-solicitation issues.  We can assist in identifying and handling the seemingly endless details involved in acquiring a business, or being acquired by another business, and the change in control issues that arise.
