Mergers & Acquisitions

When buying or selling a business, it is important to have an attorney experienced in this area.  In addition to being able to produce accurate documentation and knowing the issues to cover in order to protect the buyer or seller’s interest, it is important for the attorney to have the judgment gained from many transactions to know what terms are reasonable or “market”.  It is also important for the attorney to be able to advise a client regarding what issues should be “deal killers” and what issues are probably of somewhat lesser concern. Buying or selling a business is an emotional process, and it is also important to have an attorney who has the experience to keep the transaction on an even keel.  Ward Council has represented buyers and sellers in numerous mergers and acquisitions transactions of all descriptions, ranging from purchases and sales of publicly traded companies for hundreds of millions of dollars to purchases and sales of small fast food restaurants and professional service practices.  Ward always tries to take a proactive problem-solving approach to help parties find solutions and resolve issues to complete a transaction if it is in his client’s interest to do so.
