Brennan, Manna & Diamond has broad experience representing clients from varying perspectives in all facets of mergers, acquisitions and other forms of business consolidations and divestitures.
Many of today’s businesses were purchased from a previous owner or were acquired by another business to enhance the entity’s ability to serve its customers. A number of methods can be utilized to acquire or sell a business, and a number of pitfalls can be avoided when experienced counsel is involved early in the transactions.
With our extensive business experience, Brennan, Manna & Diamond knows how to structure transactions to protect our clients and to accomplish their goal of “getting the deal done.” We have helped many clients acquire and sell businesses. These transactions can take several basic forms, including the purchase or sale of assets or other equity interests, and mergers. There are variations of each of these basic forms. For example, in asset transactions, we have assisted our clients in purchases or sales of the entire business and operations of an entity, purchases or sales of a product line, bulk-sale transactions, purchases or sales of assets under distressed circumstances, and seller-financed transactions, to name a few.
We have also represented clients who were buyers or sellers in these types of transactions and can structure, negotiate and prepare the necessary transactional documents. We also assist in arranging acquisition and working-capital financing and in developing the framework for post-acquisition operation. These transactions can be significant opportunities for our clients, and we respond promptly with all necessary resources.
