Mergers and Acquisitions

The possibility of buying or selling a business is very exciting, but the business and legal questions that arise during this period are stressful. Each client has a different goal - it may be to maximize liquidity for equity holders, to acquire a new product line, or to purchase a competing entity. Our attorneys have extensive experience with the tax, corporate and intellectual property issues that arise along the way. 

At Whitmeyer Tuffin, we counsel our clients during the entire transaction life cycle - from planning through execution. We work closely with other advisors on the client's transaction team (such as accountants and investment bankers) to structure negotiate and document the deal, and to help our client fully understand both the rewards and risks.

Our M&A practice includes drafting and negotiating:

  • Letters of intent and term sheets
  • Asset purchase agreements
  • Stock purchase agreements
  • Mergers and other reorganizations
  • Joint venture agreements
  • Spin-offs and split-ups
  • Executive employee agreements
  • Management buy-outs
