Mergers + Acquisition Advisory Services
Mergers and Acquisitions are a vital option for the expansion and success of any business. From Fortune 100 companies to closely held businesses, Anthony Law has extensive experience advising clients in business disposition transactions through stock sale transactions; asset sale transactions, mergers with similar businesses, acquisitions of minority interests, and restructuring or reorganizing capital structures to meet the needs of owners.
Deal Structure + Risk Mitigation
The structure of a disposition transaction can have a drastic effect on whether a buyer or seller obtains the outcome sought. Often, parties to a transaction agree to terms while they are uncertain of tax consequences and the risk they will carry forward.
Anthony Law works to ease the uncertainty of its clients by assisting in commercial transactions from the idea stage through closing to ensure the best outcomes. This includes work to obtain financing; regulatory approvals; due diligence requests or production; valuations; operational issues; understanding issues related to goodwill, tangible assets and intangible assets; transaction structures and post-closing transitions from one ownership group to another.
Our attorneys have experience in a broad range of legal disciplines that allow us to analyze and mitigate risk from a variety of legal perspectives. These include potential employment, employee benefit and tort liabilities, intellectual property concerns, corporate governance concerns, environmental concerns, title issues involving real and personal property, potential tax liabilities, the risk of loss responsibilities, post-closing non-competition between parties, tax allocation considerations, and assessment of assumed and excluded liabilities.
