Mergers, Acquisitions, and Divestitures

The corporate attorneys at Whelchel, Dunlap, Jarrard & Walker, LLP has assisted clients in a wide variety of business sales, purchases, mergers and spinoffs. Clients served range from local businesses to international corporations, in industries from hospitality to health care, ice to insurance.

We have represented buyers and sellers, as well as current business owners planning for transfer to the next generation or to a group of employee-owners. Each situation is different, and many factors must be considered before deciding how to structure a business transfer. Should you sell all the stock? Purchase only assets? Self-finance? What value should be given to goodwill? What are the tax consequences? How will your employees and customers be affected? What laws or regulations must be considered?

We can help you navigate the many important decisions in structuring a business transfer, and then negotiate the most favorable terms for the deal. Contact us today to learn more about our mergers & acquisitions or to speak to one of our corporate attorneys.
