M&A Lawyers Protect Business Owners’ Interests in NJ, PA & FL
Mergers and Acquisitions can be highly complex transactions. There are many legal issues to consider including the division of assets, officers and directors, staff, equipment, locations, financial issues, liabilities and more. Often, there are both state and federal laws governing M&A deals as well as antitrust regulations and concerns about competition-related issues.
At Bratton Scott, our mergers and acquisition attorneys have the knowledge and experience to guide you and your company through even the most complicated M&A transaction in New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Florida.
Issues with Mergers, Consolidations and Acquisitions
Whether the transaction involves a buyout, a true merger, or even a hostile takeover, it’s important to be represented by a knowledgeable M&A attorney with experience in the jurisdiction in which you are located. Bratton Scott’s lawyers advise business owners in NJ, PA & FL about all business issues, including M&A law, and will draft all relevant legal documents including those related to:
- Intellectual property/technology
- Distribution of suppliers, customers and equipment
- Human resource issues
- Tax liability
- Product fulfillment issues
- The new management team
- Issues relating to the shareholders
- Private and public market issues
Mergers and consolidations are generally consensual in nature. Acquisitions can be friendly or hostile. In friendly takeovers, the management of the target company and the party seeking the acquisition both agree to the transaction. In a hostile takeover, that’s not the case. Make sure you protected by a lawyer with the experience to manage your interests.
We will oversee due diligence, transaction negotiations, preparation of legal contracts and the closing of the deal.
