The Scope of the Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group
Saul Ewing's Mergers and Acquisitions practice focuses on providing assistance on tax and other structuring issues, and negotiating and documenting business mergers, acquisitions, and divestiture transactions. Experienced attorneys from the relevant legal areas coordinate to provide the necessary experience for these transactions, including counsel on:
Strategic Representation: A Variety of Corporate Law Issues
Saul Ewing's Mergers and Acquisitions practice represents private companies acquiring or selling assets for cash, as well as public companies engaged in merger or acquisition transactions that require extensive securities law advice. From smaller transactions with a relatively narrow universe of legal issues to the very complex matters with layers of intricate negotiation, Saul Ewing's Mergers and Acquisitions practice provides tailored advice and representation for each situation. Our attorneys are experienced in representing both acquirers and targets in friendly and hostile takeovers, so we have well- rounded experience in handling the myriad of corporate and securities law issues that may arise.
Structuring Solutions: A Range of Transactions
In addition to mergers and acquisitions, our attorneys handle joint ventures and strategic alliances with a particular emphasis on technology and healthcare-oriented corporations. We structure these agreements with special attention to the business, tax and accounting consequences they may pose, creatively integrating these considerations to provide a cohesive solution. At the same time, we take measures to protect intellectual property, particularly in licensing agreements that are often at the heart of a strategic relationship.
Saul Ewing's Mergers and Acquisitions practice attorneys work with clients to meet two important objectives: first, to keep the process moving forward; and second, to achieve the client's goals for each transaction.
