Most businesses grow through the mergers and acquisitions process, but this procedure is not nearly as straightforward as buying or selling real estate. There are a number of things to consider, and any misstep can result in significant consequences down the road.

Nearly all businesses have multiple stakeholders and/or decision makers. Everyone must be on the same page. Or, in the alternative, minority interests must be accounted for. Aggrieved minority parties can effectively derail the business acquisition process. This procedure includes:
While we work diligently, we understand that time is often of the essence. So, we also work hard to keep things moving forward.
Generally, the merger process requires less due diligence, since the company to be merged still retains some independence.
Shareholder actions are the main threat to successful mergers. In many cases, these derivative actions can undo months of planning and work. At the very least, they cause distracting and costly delays. Our approach is always to get ahead of the curve, anticipate difficulties, and deal with them before they mushroom into serious problems.
