On many occasions, merger and acquisition transactions raise complex tax structuring considerations. In those instances, Our firm will coordinate with the appropriate outside counsel to ensure that our clients reap the benefit of the most tax-efficient transaction structure.
Following the closing of a merger and acquisition transaction, there may be a transition period in which the purchaser and the seller continue to have obligations to each other with respect to the transaction. We help our clients overcome and navigate the potential legal risks and pitfalls of such transition periods. We believe that our work is not complete at closing and strive to ensure that our firm’s clients fulfill their legal obligations, such as earn-outs, employment agreements, and post-closing restrictive covenants.
