Buying, selling, or merging a business is a major decision with significant consequences. In a sale, one company purchases the assets or stock of another company. In a merger, two or more companies combine into a single survivor business. Shares of stock from the survivor business are then issued to shareholders in exchange for shares of the merged company.
Business sales and mergers are often complicated and grueling. Working with an experienced business sales and mergers attorney can reduce your financial risk in complex, high-value business transactions.
