Merger & Aquisitions

Dagher Law has extensive experience in representing buyers and sellers of businesses in virtually every industry. We have significant hands-on experience in drafting and negotiating acquisitions and divestitures. We understand the issues that arise and suggest creative solutions that bridge differences between the parties. We seek solutions to those differences, rather than having both parties become entrenched in their positions. We have experienced practitioners in all the legal areas necessary to handle an acquisition: labor, litigation, tax (including retirement plan issues), securities, antitrust, intellectual property and real estate (including environmental issues).

We pride ourselves in working toward closing deals, and in working with clients to help them meet their goals in the process.

Merger and Acquisition Practice

Every M&A deal is different, but there are common themes that run throughout. Our M&A practice covers the full range of services necessary to accomplish the transaction. These include:

  • Structuring the transaction;
  • Positioning the client at the letter of intent stage;
  • Drafting and negotiating the acquisition agreement, any escrow agreement, employment agreements and other ancillary agreements;
  • Due diligence;
  • Federal and state tax issues;
  • Real estate issues;
  • Environmental issues;
  • Labor and employment issues, including union and WARN act issues;
  • Intellectual property issues;
  • Employee benefits issues, including forming new benefit plans and COBRA issues;
  • Antitrust issues, including Hart Scott Rodino filings;
  • Securities issues where the consideration involved is securities or the target is a public company; and
  • Bankruptcy and creditors’ rights issues where the seller’s financial condition is suspect.
