Reasons to hire a business acquisition lawyer

Conducting a business acquisition can be an intense progress. Some negotiations are fast-paced while others involve long waiting periods. Regardless of the specific nature of your transaction, there are numerous reasons why it is critical to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side, such as:

  • Contract drafting and review — Our firm drafts thorough contracts so that our clients’ interests are protected and each party has a clear understanding of their rights and obligations. Likewise, we provide a detailed review and analysis of agreements prepared by others.
  • Negotiation and litigation experience — Drawing on our extensive background representing businesses in negotiations and litigation dating back to 1875, we deliver clearheaded guidance on offers, counteroffers and disputes that arise. Regardless of the specific issues, we focus on securing a result that puts you in the best position to achieve long-term success.
  • Due diligence — Each step you take in a deal requires an investment of time and effort. Performing effective due diligence helps you avoid wasting resources unnecessarily. Our seasoned attorneys conduct thorough reviews so that potential problems can be identified before it is too late to turn back.
  • Protection against liability — Sometimes even the most promising deals fall apart. When this occurs, the other party to the potential acquisition might raise a claim of fraud or other unlawful activity during the acquisition process. At every stage of the transaction, we guard against statements and actions that might be used against you later if problems arise.

Your business acquisition represents a considerable capital outlay. You can safeguard that investment by getting dependable advice from our knowledgeable attorneys.
