Mergers & Acquisitions
Expanding a business through a merger or acquisition is one of the most significant undertakings any business owner can take. It will result in a considerable amount of adjustment for the business and those working within it. So it’s not a step to be taken lightly or without the appropriate legal guidance.
Selling your business is an opportunity either to make money or to move on to another business or retirement. You need good legal advice to ensure you obtain the maximum value for your business and also that you minimise any risks to you after the sale.
True mergers are rare; they are usually one business acquiring another. Sometimes mergers do occur and we can help form a new business to merge the existing ones.
Add Value to your Business
Business acquisitions can reveal new possibilities, open up new markets and bring about new leadership potential. They enable you to grow your business, increase resources and build a broader customer base. Business sales allow you to take value from a business you have built up over years.
As mergers and acquisitions progress from an initial approach to the agreeing of terms and final completion, business owners have to contend with numerous, complex considerations, involving countless managerial, financial and operational issues.
Reaping the full rewards of a merger or acquisition is more likely if expert legal assistance is involved as early on in the process as possible.
