Mergers & Acquisitions

We also advise as to the timing, structure, financing, and pricing of a proposed acquisition, and assist in negotiating and closing the deal.

We advise clients contemplating the sale of certain businesses, assets, or their entire company by evaluating and recommending financial and strategic alternatives with respect to the sale, advising on the appropriate sales process for the situation and valuation issues, and preparing an offering memorandum and other appropriate sales materials. We also identify and contact qualified acquirers and assist in negotiating and closing the sale.
