Pinpointing Potential Legal Issues
Our number one goal is for your merger or acquisition to move forward as you intended without any legal hangups that could slow down or halt the process. We work to ensure a smooth process by doing our due diligence regarding research on the other side of the deal, whether it is a seller or buyer. We verify their finances, contracts, customers, clients, legal status, and much more.
From there, and depending on whether the deal is considered “friendly” or “unfriendly,” we seek to identify any other potential legal issues that could pop up. For example, larger firms may run into antitrust and regulatory obstacles. If that is the case for your business, we can help you seek regulatory approval and make sure your merger or acquisition is completely above board.
An M&A attorney who truly understands your business and the business of merging, expanding, and scaling businesses can help you get from takeoff to landing with no legal turbulence in between.
Building a Roadmap
One of the key deliverables you receive from a qualified M&A lawyer is a roadmap that discusses every aspect of your deal, from start to finish. That necessarily includes an expected time frame, an outline of potential legal hurdles, to-do lists, and a rundown of planned negotiating tactics.
This roadmap is an extremely important aspect of our promise to keep you informed every step of the way.
Finding the Right Deal Structure
After our Arlington M&A law firm has fully understood your goals and the situation you are currently in, we will then help you to maximize the value of the business transaction you are preparing to make by examining the proposed and available deal structures. We will discuss with you purchase price, payment terms, tax implications, trading or maintaining ownership interest, cash and equity, adjustments to working capital from the proposed deal, and any other detail that may come up.
The intended result of this high degree of detail and intensive discussion is to fully prepare our clients to secure the best possible merger or acquisition deal, anticipate the effects on their businesses, and set them up for a long and prosperous business future.
Ensuring Accuracy and Legality
At every single point in a merger or acquisition, 100 percent accuracy and a maniacal focus on detail is key to success. We understand this and put these skills into practice for our M&A clients at all times.
For example, all documents, contracts, and other paperwork related to the deal must be error-free and legally bulletproof. Not every lawyer can maintain this high level of quality throughout an entire merger or acquisition, and even tiny errors can result in deals falling through, millions of dollars lost, and more.
We can help with the review and/or drafting of documents and filings like the following:
- Merger or acquisition announcement press releases
- Definitive agreements, merger agreements, and asset purchase agreements
- Merger proxies
- Tender or exchange offers
