We discuss alternatives with management, such as the possible uses of ESOPs and IPOs, and the differing strategies used by financial and strategic buyers.

We have represented numerous corporate clients in the drafting and negotiating of engagement letters and confidentiality agreements. We also handle the preparation of definitive agreements dealing with all aspects of the structure and procedures of the merger and acquisition transaction.

Our clients benefit from practical advice and counsel on various other aspects of mergers and acquisitions representation, including fairness opinions and securities law issues.

Whether representing the buyer or the seller in a public company business combination, our attorneys have experience advising on the content and timing of their disclosure requirements, and with making any necessary filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission or state regulators.
