Mergers & Acquisitions

Sage Counsel for Complex Commercial Transactions

Your business executes agreements every day and oftentimes these transactions are minor and without much consequence. But don’t be fooled, a merger or acquisition of even a small company is not like any routine business contract or agreement. An effective M&A strategy will take months, if not years, to complete due to buyout terms, compliance issues, and unforeseen challenges with contractual or intellectual property rights.

A well-negotiated merger or acquisition can give both the target and the acquirer a tremendous payoff. Increasingly, these transactions are being used by companies in high-growth and emerging industries to gain a firmer and larger foothold in their market and are often leveraged with technology replacing outdated systems and personnel. Sage Business Counsel provides true advocacy in these negotiated transactions by bringing its unique experience in litigation to the table. By understanding how these transactions go wrong, Sage Business Counsel gives your company an edge to prevent pitfalls that even experienced document lawyers miss. A lack of understanding of the rules of civil procedure, discovery, and evidence leaves a company at risk for long and drawn-out legal battles that often hinge very little on the merits but more on the lack of prowess of the legal team.

From negotiating the financing structure to identifying significant legal issues that may present problems later on, our team is always available. Just as importantly, Sage Business Counsel can help existing stakeholders such as employees, vendors, and others adjust after the deal closes.
