Mergers and Acquistions
Becker assists both buyers and sellers in M&A transactions, providing sophisticated advice and counsel from pre-LOI through closing and beyond.
The utilization of mergers and acquisitions by successful companies as valuable components of long-term growth and innovation strategies is a growing trend. Timing is almost always critical: opportunities can emerge and evaporate virtually overnight. Our attorneys provide counsel critical for our clients to capitalize and close on these major opportunities.
Our attorneys advise buyers, sellers, investors, shareholder groups, boards of directors and other interested parties in all aspects of complex business combinations and other forms of acquisition, combination, divestiture and sale (including tax-free reorganization). We focus on the big picture by understanding and balancing our client’s culture, needs and vision. With this focus, we collaborate with our clients to create and maximize value during each phase of the transaction.
Many times, our most important contribution occurs at the outset of the transaction when we assist our clients in analysis, structuring and planning of the transaction. This initial planning serves to inform the subsequent negotiations, diligence, document preparation, closing and post-closing matters.
