Mergers & Acquisitions
At BMD, we partner with our clients and make it a priority to understand and appreciate their corporate structure and business strategy. We understand an M&A transaction can be the most significant business event for an organization. BMD's wealth of business and legal experience allows us to guide our clients through complex corporate matters. Our team has the "know how" to structure transactions to protect our clients and to accomplish their goal of “getting the deal done.” We represent clients from varying industries and perspectives in all facets of mergers, acquisitions as well as other forms of business consolidations and divestitures.
The BMD mergers and acquisitions team leverages their extensive business and legal experience in order to advise our clients in all aspects of buying and selling businesses, including purchases and sales of equity and assets, merger transactions, going private transactions, recapitalizations and other corporate restructurings. We have represented private and public buyers and sellers and have been engaged in both domestic and cross border transactions. BMD's mergers and acquisitions attorneys have assisted clients with such transactions as: 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.
From pre-transaction planning and structuring through due diligence, negotiations and drafting documentation, financing, closing and resolution of post-closing adjustments and other post-closing issues, BMD's merger and acquisition attorneys strive to protect the value of our clients' transactions while at the same time making certain that we provide practical solutions to the issues that arise in the course of any transaction. Our experience allows us insight to not only identify risks, but to negotiate to minimize those risks while maximizing the realization of the clients' goals and objectives.
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. Through our pragmatic, business-focused approach, we offer a number of solutions to acquire or sell a business and identify the pitfalls to be avoided throughout the entire transaction. We listen to our clients' needs, offer solutions and empower them to achieve success.
