At Burr & Forman, we assist individuals and companies large and small in a variety of industries in acquiring or selling businesses. We meet with our clients to fully understand their needs and customize a team of our attorneys with the applicable specialties to advise them through the entire merger or acquisition.

These transactions include sales of assets, sales of stock or other equity positions, mergers, consolidations, and tax-free reorganizations. The strength of our creditors' rights and bankruptcy team also allows us to handle purchases and sales of assets and businesses in distressed situations, including bankruptcy and receivership proceedings.

Because we are a full-service law firm, we are capable of understanding and assessing all aspects of a business acquisition or disposition, as well as the underlying business. This enables us to advise our clients how best to structure a transaction, minimize risks, and achieve results.

Our acquisition services include:

  • Conducting due diligence investigations
  • Negotiating the transaction & documentation
  • Planning for taxable & tax-free mergers & acquisitions
  • Preparing documentation
  • Post-merger integration

We also assess and allocate risks on all aspects of the transaction including:

  • Environmental concerns
  • ERISA compliance
  • Labor & employment matters
  • Litigation
  • Patent, trademark, copyright & other intellectual property rights
  • Real estate
  • Securities law compliance

Our team also works with purchasers of businesses including representing the client in the debt or equity financing that may be necessary to consummate the acquisition.
