M&A transactions involve multiple documents. M&A attorneys help negotiate the terms. These documents include:
-Letters of Intent
-Intellectual Property Transfers
An M&A attorney is usually not involved in matching buyers with sellers, setting the purchase price and post-closing integration. For matching buyers with sellers you would typically engage either a business broker, investment banker or M&A advisor.
An accountant, CPA or other tax advisor should help determine the purchase price and advise on tax structure. This person should be familiar with M&A transactions. If you need any of the foregoing advisors, our referral service can assist you.
