Frequently Asked Questions About Mergers And Acquisitions

I am thinking about selling my business. What steps should I take?

Engaging an M&A attorney is a critical step in selling your business. We can help you negotiate the key terms of the deal from the beginning of the deal process when you have greater leverage. This proactive approach can lead to more favorable terms, such as stronger protections against any post-sale liabilities. We also help identify and address any potential legal or regulatory issues upfront, which can prevent costly delays or complications later in the sale process.

How can you help me effectively and efficiently sell my business?

Our experience in M&A law enables us to streamline the sale process. We will manage all legal documentation and negotiations, drawing on our extensive experience to anticipate and resolve potential issues to the extent possible before they arise. With our guidance, you can continue to focus on the successful operation of your business while we handle the complexities of the sale.

What are common pitfalls in the merger and acquisition process, and how can they be avoided?

Common pitfalls in M&A, such as due diligence oversights, integration missteps, and contract ambiguities, can be costly. As your M&A attorneys, we meticulously review and advise on every legal aspect of the deal, from the initial letter of intent or term sheet to the final closing documents and even post-sale adjustments and concerns. 

What due diligence is required from my side as a seller?

Generally, you must provide full disclosure of your business’s operations, financials, and potential legal issues. Our role as M&A attorneys is to help you disclose any potential issues with your business and protect your interests by crafting effective limitations on potential liabilities, including post-sale liabilities. We will also assist with the legal due diligence process and prepare draft disclosure schedules that may provide liability protection by disclosing potential issues to the buyer during the sale process. The objective is to prevent any post-sale disputes or surprises by revealing all material information upfront.

What are the key legal considerations when selling my business?

Key legal considerations include the structure of the transaction, tax implications, and the transferability of contracts and licenses. As M&A attorneys, we assess all these aspects to strive to structure the deal in the most advantageous way for you. We also associate with the appropriate outside counsel and other advisors to provide support for services we do not offer, such as employment law, real estate law, intellectual property law, valuation services, and the preparation of tax returns.
