The Law Offices of Kirk Halpin & Associates, P.A. has experience handling mergers and acquisitions, and sales of businesses of all types. We are able to assist businesses throughout all phases of this process, from pre-acquisition due diligence to filing with State and Federal agencies post-closing. Here are a few ways an M&A lawyer can help!
Drafting and Analysis of M&A Agreements
Our lawyers can draft acquisition agreements and stock purchases, or review and provide analysis of these documents. We are able to assist with confidentiality, non-compete and employment agreements. If your business employs financial advisors or lending sources it’s a good idea to have one of our lawyers draft a consulting and engagement agreement, or a loan commitment agreement.
Due Diligence and Asset Review
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Kirk Halpin & Associates, P.A. are well versed in reviewing a selling company’s intellectual property, including software, trademarks and service marks. Due diligence is an important part of a merger or acquisition. A lawyer will review the information given to the buyer from the seller to make sure the information is accurate and there are no surprises.
Closing and Post-Closing
If any issues come up during or after closing, an M&A lawyer will be there to help handle any issues or disputes. We are able to file the appropriate forms with state and local government agencies and any documentation regarding changes in title to assets.
