Mergers and Acquisitions
The Corporate Business and Banking Group (CBB) of Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, P.C. considers “mergers and acquisitions” (M&A) to include any transaction in which an individual or entity buys, sells, shares or transfers stock, assets, line(s) of business or revenue stream(s). Those transactions include:
- Stock Purchase and Sale Transactions
- Asset Purchase and Sale Transactions
- Transactions Involving Agreements for Purchase and Sale of Partnership or LLC Interests
- Joint Ventures
The CBB Group has experience in handling all legal aspects of small to medium sized transactions. Those transactions typically range from $1,000,000-$25,000,000. We serve the small and medium sized M&A market by providing high quality legal services at reasonable and extremely competitive rates.
Our Group understands the benefits of preparing both the Seller and Buyer for the transaction. Working with accounting and valuation professionals, we are actively involved in Seller Due Diligence which often results in a significant value to the Seller. We are also in a position to assist with proper and thorough Buyer Due Diligence, again in conjunction with accounting and other professionals, which allows the Buyer to comfortably and prudently complete the transaction but minimize risk.
Our Group understands the “anatomy” of an M&A transaction. We are often involved in the very first communications on behalf of our clients. Our services include:
- Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements
- Letters of Intent
- Financial Sourcing
- Seller Due Diligence
- Buyer Due Diligence
- Document Preparation and Negotiation
- Closing Services
- Post-Closing Services
We work efficiently and cooperatively with the other Practice Groups at our Firm (for example, our real estate, land use & development and labor & employment practitioners) to provide appropriate “one-stop shopping” for all of our clients’ M&A needs.
