Mergers & Acquisitions
Experienced corporate law firm managing every aspect of your business deal
Every business owner knows that there are continuing challenges as your company’s success increases. With initial success, there may be expansion. This expansion can be complicated, involving real estate transactions, financial matters and more. At Friedman Law Professional Corporation, we help you through every step of your company’s growth process, whether you are going through a merger or an acquisition.
What is a merger?
A merger is the combination of two separate companies into a new enterprise. The two original companies cease to exist as separate businesses and instead continue to run as a single entity. This is also known as consolidation. Our lawyers assist you through a smooth merger and then advise you on how to function as one business.
What is an acquisition?
An acquisition occurs when one company purchases another. The acquiring company takes over the assets of the target company. Also known as a takeover, an acquisition can either be private or public, depending on whether the target company has publically-traded stocks. Whether your acquisition is friendly or hostile, our lawyers can help ensure that it is successful.
