Mergers and Acquisitions

Determining whether to buy or sell a business and navigating the pitfalls of successfully closing the deal is a complicated process that requires sound legal advice from knowledgeable and experienced counsel.

KDDK attorneys regularly guide clients through a variety of complex transactions, both friendly and contested, including the buying or selling of a business, either through stock purchase or asset purchase, merger, consolidation, reorganization and succession planning for family-owned businesses.

These complex transactions not only involve the decision of how to structure a transaction, but also require consideration of other factors such as tax issues and regulatory requirements.  Our business attorneys possess a wide range of experiences in areas such as finance, tax, real estate, environmental, employment and employee benefits law to provide innovative and integrated advice on the wide-array of issues that arise when structuring a deal. Our goal is to maximize the value of the transaction to the buyer or seller we are representing.
