Every merger or acquisition requires comprehensive research and understanding of the target entity. Diligently gathering information allows us to identify the areas that need protection, and the areas of risk. We assist with all aspects of due diligence, including reviewing key contracts and leases, undertaking trade mark and business name searches, undertaking court searches and advising on potential tax implications of past transactions.
We have advised and assisted numerous companies involved in mergers or purchases. This includes acting for the purchaser and assisting with the review of large amounts of documentation. It also includes acting for the vendor, providing advice on provision of information, confidentiality and resolving any issues as they arise.
