Mergers and Acquisitions

A merger is a combination of two companies to form a new company, while an acquisition is the purchase of one company by another in which no new company is formed.  Purchasing a new business can be both exciting and challenging.  There are several steps that you will need to take to do so successfully.  The first challenge is knowing what you need.  First, you will need the right professional to assist you in getting the right documentation in place, advice on tax consequences, valuations, and review of potential legal hurdles.  Depending on the type of business you are in, you may need purchase agreements, leases, land transfer documentation, bills of sale for business personal property, assumptions, and other agreements. We can draft these for you based on your individual circumstances all while protecting your best interests and assets.
Beebe Law Group is experienced in complex business acquisitions.  We can help. No acquisition is the same.  Call us to discuss your specific needs and let us help you plan the best approach to your new investment.

Are you selling?  Winding up and selling your business can be overwhelming. How do you put a price on your life’s work or a startup that kept you up every night for a year or more? If you have real estate, do you list it for sale? If so, at what price? Maybe a lease buy back is an option. Do you even know what a lease buy-back is? How do you handle existing employment arrangements, business assets, taxes, etc.? Let us help you sort it all out. Not only can we handle the documentation, real estate issues, and potential legal pitfalls, we have a team waiting to assist with your transition.

Acquiring an existing business whether by an outright purchase or a merger requires extensive due diligence and vetting of the existing business. All aspects of the business must be investigated when making a decision to add it to your own. If you have already completed this extensive process and you are ready to make an offer or you need assistance with negotiating the final terms, give us a call.
