Is your organization being acquired, or looking to acquire another?

If your company is planning to enter a strategic partnership with another company soon, you have to consider the legal factors that will affect your business transactions. Mergers and acquisitions are supposed to be mutually beneficial, so you must ensure that your company would never be undervalued in the eyes of the law. For this reason, you need the guidance of a mergers and acquisitions lawyer to state the terms your company deserves.

What are Mergers & Acquisitions?

Business owners and entrepreneurs enter strategic partnerships in order to be successful and get ahead of the competition. In a way, mergers and acquisitions are products of business competition and market liquidity. Companies purchase and/or merge with other companies to gain a competitive advantage in a broader market or new territory.

 

Merging is when two or more companies consolidate to form a single business entity with a new management structure. Meanwhile, acquisition is when one company purchases another company (wholly or by share) to grow market shares, gain new partners and customers, and reduce competition. Mergers and acquisitions are cost-effective solutions that can improve a business’s overall performance, but they can only be successful if done smoothly and strategically. Half the journey is getting there, and it’s lengthy and tedious. One way to achieve a smooth and successful merger or acquisition process is to seek help from an experienced mergers and acquisitions lawyer like Todd Jackson.

 

Todd Jackson Law provides a full range of law services for major business life events and transactions. He can help you come up with swift decisions and timely solutions if you’re planning to enter strategic deals. If your company is absorbing another company, being absorbed by another company, or joining forces with a new company, Todd can lay down all the legal aspects, requirements, and steps you need to understand and undergo. 

 

As one of the leading mergers and acquisitions lawyers in Tennessee, Todd can help you navigate the complexities of business law to find new promising opportunities and ensure your company’s long-term success. 

Frequently asked questions about Mergers and Acquisitions

Frequently we see clients in need of mergers and acquisitions legal services. As subject matter experts, we frequently guide clients with the following types of questions. When in doubt, it is a best practice to consult with an experienced lawyer. Have a question about mergers and acquisitions? Give Todd Jackson Law a call.

The mergers and acquisitions attorney handles all the legal paperwork and negotiations for your company. Ultimately, the lawyer ensures that the terms and payments are mutually beneficial, the funding is sufficient, and the transaction is legally bound. If there are disputes and conflicts in the closing and post-closing of the deal, the lawyer nips them in the bud. 

Mergers and acquisitions are both strategic options, but they also have pros and cons, depending on the companies involved and the type of business formation. You need to base your decision on the underlying advantages and disadvantages of the two options. 

 

Mergers can offer more mutually-beneficial terms, provide new stocks and stronger industry names, and build more prominent and efficient firms. Acquisitions, meanwhile, can provide access to a more considerable capital, broaden the company’s market share and target audience, and reduce entry barriers.  

Aside from the legal steps your mergers and acquisitions lawyer will tell you, you also need to ensure the protection of the company’s assets and liabilities against other risks. The lawyer can guide you through the legal areas of the process (litigation proceedings, regulatory issues, review of agreements and contracts). Still, you need the help of solicitors and other professionals to oversee the financial areas (taxes, accounting, financial performance) and operational areas (business structure, sales pipeline, employee management) of the process.

Things to consider with Mergers and Acquisitions

Tennessee Law

Related Tennessee laws on mergers and acquisitions aim to promote a healthy competitive environment among business entities. During the process, you may encounter the Tennessee Business Corporation Act, Nonprofit Corporation Act, Antitrust Law, and the Corporations, Partnerships, and Associations Law.

Risks

All companies involved in the merger or acquisition process are at risk. During and after the process, higher-ups should watch out for these potential risks: lack of transparency, culture clash, integration issues, overpaid deals, and employee engagement issues.

Federal Law

Like Tennessee, the federal government also aims to eliminate anti-competitive behaviors during mergers and acquisitions. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are tasked to ensure that companies undergoing mergers and acquisitions follow federal laws on antitrust, fair competition, insider trading, and devalued stocks.

Costs

All companies involved in the process are required to understand and calculate the cost of mergers and acquisitions. Aside from legal and professional fees, also consider the new company’s cost on technology, office space, relocation, and marketing or public relation.
