The value that skilled attorneys bring in the M&A process

| Sep 17, 2015 | Mergers & Acquisitions |

It remains to be seen whether the surge in mergers and acquisitions will continue after the Fed’s most recent decision. Regardless of the differing opinions, it is important for executives and managers to know the value that experienced business law attorneys can provide for companies that seek to acquire assets, as well as those who are at risk of being bought.

For the uninitiated, it is important to understand the value that the practitioners at Shulman Bastian Friedman & Bui LLP can bring. They include:

Due Diligence – Any deal requires a comprehensive appraisal of a business; including, but not limited to, its earnings reports, its liabilities and any other potential legal impediments. A skilled attorney can advise you of what can be expected during this process and how you should handle red flags that come up.

Valuation – Similarly, a professional estimation of the business’ worth is an essential part of due diligence. This way a fair price can be negotiated for the particular asset to be acquired.

Integration Planning – While an acquisition or purchase may seem genuine and beneficial in the abstract, but when the actual execution of a merger take place, how will it actually play out? The value of strategic integration planning cannot be understated.

Post Close Execution – The marriage of two companies takes time, and there are many tasks to be completed and systems to be integrated (or resolved). Skilled M&A attorneys can help stakeholders decide which tasks must be prioritized.
