There are three principal ways to acquire a business: through an asset acquisition, a stock acquisition, or a merger. Choosing which structure to use involves many factors; understanding each factor and its impact on each party is essential. Business attorney Justin Lowenthal will help you choose which structure to use, including commercial issues, process and consents, and tax issues. He will help you evaluate successor liability issues, such as assumed liabilities, de facto mergers, fraudulent transfers, and statutory claims.
Selecting the best structure is critical to the success of any acquisition. Structuring a deal requires creativity, planning, and flexibility. We aim to do our job well and exceed client expectations in all private merger and acquisition deals.
