Mergers and acquisitions lawyers in Appleton who understand the complexities of mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions is an area of law involving the buying and selling of companies. A merger creates a new company from the assets of two companies and new stock is issued. By contrast, in an acquisition, one party buys another company by acquiring all of its assets. The buying, selling, dividing and combining of different companies can result in many issues that need to be assessed by a mergers and acquisitions attorney in Appleton before the transaction is finalized. Our experienced Appleton business law attorneys can review the following issues:

  • What contracts and documents must be prepared to begin the merger or acquisition?
  • What are the tax implications of the merger or acquisition?
  • What assets are being bought or acquired?
  • Are there any potential liabilities attached to the merger or acquisition?

Our Wisconsin attorneys’ experience in business formation, contracts and general business law allows us to examine all aspects of the proposed merger or acquisition, address issues and make appropriate recommendations.
