Mergers & Acquisitions.

Business Mergers & Corporate Acquisitions.

When planning a merger with, or the acquisition of, another business it is vital to set out your goals and intentions in order to get the deal you want.

You will need to talk through your objectives with your legal team so there is a clear understanding of what is required in completing the transaction. Your lawyer will be able to talk you through the process and give the advice you need on the best way to proceed.

Mergers and acquisitions are an effective way for businesses to grow and get further exposure to relevant markets.  You will need help with any important legal points to ensure your interests are safeguarded at each stage.

These deals can arise in a number of ways but generally are centred around growth and the need for expansion by a company on one hand and the need to dispose of assets with a view to streamlining the business or avoiding significant financial losses on the other.

There are undoubtedly going to be complicated tax and legal considerations, so having the expertise of an experienced specialist legal adviser is vital.
