Why Do You Need A Mergers & Acquisitions Lawyer?
A merger is a complex process that can bring up many questions. Are you going to purchase shares, stocks, or assets? Your business liabilities can easily change depending on if you purchase shares, stocks, or assets. Do you need to form a new business entity? Are you gaining new liabilities? Stock often means no need to form a new business entity, but also taking on the liability of the company. Assets often require a shareholder agreement and new entity, but no additional liability. If you are unsure about the answers, then our lawyers can help you decide the best solutions for your situation.
