Buying or selling a business is a complex process. Among the many moving parts of M&A are contracts to be reviewed, competition agreements to be settled upon, and costs and other considerations to be negotiated. Indeed, this process can begin long before the actual transaction as we help you to build a business that can be sold.
In addition, an M&A transaction is more than a sales agreement. It’s important to carefully consider and structure the merger or acquisition transaction so that it can be a jumping-off point to achieving your post-closing goals.
That’s why our mergers and acquisitions lawyers look at any M&A deal in terms of short- and long-term goals in addition to managing the many details, which include:
- Drafting agreements
- Spelling out what’s included, such as inventory, equipment, and real estate
- Considering agreements reached with prior owners and examining relevant provisions for the new agreement
Merger and acquisition agreements are important, and they must be very clear. Way Law’s qualified business acquisition attorneys can help ensure the proper language is included in the M&A contracts before you finalize them with new owners.
