Mergers and Acquisitions

The mergers and acquisitions lawyers of Essex Richards help business owners and leadership negotiate the complex legal issues involved in buying or selling a business.  From the initial consideration of a deal or proposal, through regulatory approvals, financing, operational issues, and deal closing, our lawyers work closely with our clients and their other advisors, where appropriate, to try to make the deal happen as planned and minimize or eliminate surprises.

Whether representing a buyer or seller, we help our clients navigate all types of business transactions, including acquisitions, sale of all or part of a business, corporate reorganizations, leveraged buyouts, mergers, and developing and implementing exit strategies.  Our experience advising clients in these types of transactions has been in many industries including construction, food and beverage, health care, franchised businesses, manufacturing, sales and distribution, manufacturer representatives, real estate, and technology.  The size of the transactions we have been involved with have ranged from a nominal amount to in excess of $40 million.
