Mergers and acquisitions are complicated business transactions involving significant investments that need protection. At Burkhalter Kessler Clement & George LLP, our attorneys understand the high stakes nature of these transactions. We fully understand that each of our clients come to us with their own unique concerns and goals. Taking a customized and detail-driven approach to these cases is paramount.
Comprehensive M&A Representation
Our approach to representing our clients in this complex area of business law is first to identify both their specific objectives and the related legal issues they may face now and in the future. From there, we customize a plan and perform our due diligence with attention to every detail while minimizing financial risks.
A significant part of our M&A representation involves indemnification provisions in agreements. Issues surround the possibility of liability-creating events occurring after the deal is closed and which party should be responsible for those potential liabilities. Both sides share the same desire to minimize those specific issues. Sellers want to move on to their next opportunity. In contrast, buyers do not want to “inherit” any possible problems that could arise following the finalization of the sale.
As with any aspect of M&A, and regardless of what side we are on, we focus on our clients’ business interests to ensure the best possible outcome. We employ strategies to secure the best deal for our clients, whether that comes through negotiating a contract, refusing the buyer’s overtures, or moving on to another interested candidate.
Providing comprehensive legal representation also involves ongoing, post-transaction issues that may arise in the future.
