Mergers and Acquisitions
Halloran & Sage attorneys have extensive experience representing businesses in mergers and acquisitions of all sizes and for a variety of industries. We handle all aspects of the purchase or sale of a business, regardless of whether it is a merger, asset or stock transaction. We have a particular strength in mergers and acquisitions of closely held businesses and in advising these businesses about all aspects of liquidity events, succession planning and exit strategies. This includes buy-sell agreements, stock redemptions, ESOPs, insurance programs, family trusts partnerships and limited liability companies, recapitalization with debt, private equity or multiple classes of securities, and initial public offerings.
Our lawyers bring practical experience in business to their in-depth knowledge of the law. This dual understanding of business and law enhances our ability to focus due diligence activities on what matters, identify and manage risks, devise practical solutions, negotiate from strength and achieve our clients' goals, whether for strategic growth or an exit strategy with appropriate protections against known and unknown risks. More specifically, we help clients manage risk through proper transaction structuring, warranties, and documentation including indemnifications, covenants not to compete and confidentiality agreements.
In mergers and acquisitions, we start by understanding the client's long-term goals along with its short-term objectives. We work closely with you to ensure that you achieve both. Our goal is to provide our clients with value-added services through skilled negotiation and creative craftsmanship.
