Merger and Acquisitions Lawyers: What You Need To Know

Why Do You Need A Merger and Acquisition Lawyer?

Is your firm merging, being absorbed, or acquiring another company? If that’s the case, you have come to the right place. Seeking the services of a seasoned merger and acquisition lawyer to ensure that your deal runs smoothly is an absolute necessity. Mergers and acquisitions are complex and significant events in the lives of private and public companies and their numerous constituencies-directors, managers, shareholders, and employees.

 

M&A attorneys play crucial roles when it comes to implementation, evaluation, and the structuring of mergers and acquisitions. Our network of lawyers are highly experienced in merger and acquisition, and they have an excellent record in corporate and intellectual property law, which are essential in the merger and acquisition processes. We represent both buyers and sellers in merger and acquisition transactions.

 

Before any of our merger and acquisition lawyers close a deal, they exercise due diligence and check for IP information reliability and accuracy for the avoidance of future legal battles. Our professionals go out of their way to ensure that the terms are clear to all parties. Merger and acquisition lawyers are experts at tax laws, drafting legally binding agreements, processing payments, stockholder agreements, resolving conflicts in case of hostile conditions of transactions, negotiating terms in case other entities or the government is against a merger or acquisition, and handling documents.

 

A merger and acquisition lawyer also acts as a:

Mediator

To close a merger and acquisition transaction, a lawyer is an important ‘piece of a huge puzzle.’ Merger and acquisition deals often involve people who provide professional services like real estate brokers, bankers, and accountants. In as much as these professionals help get things done, merger and acquisition attorneys act as central points of contact, and every aspect of a deal goes through them for approval or review. As such, merger and acquisition attorneys act as mediators between professionals involved in different arrangements and their clients.

 

Negotiator

Contrary to popular belief, lawyers don’t always argue to win. At times, they are required to negotiate to make fair deals or meet the needs of their clients. Merger and acquisition lawyers ensure that deals close when they are supposed to, as they as supposed to, and that parties involved are fully satisfied with outcomes. To ensure this happens, attorneys negotiate with opposing counsel and other professionals committed to achieving the desired goals.


How to Choose a Merger and Acquisition Lawyer

Consider the following:

  • Credentials- How long has the attorney been in practice? Has the counsel worked on similar cases to yours?

  • Comfort Level- Are you comfortable revealing personal information to the attorney? Is the lawyer keen to solve your problem?

  • Cost-How is the attorney’s fee structured? Does the lawyer charge a flat or hourly rate? Can the attorney estimate your case’s cost?
