Our Business and Finance Group is widely recognized as one of the finest in the region. Whether you are executing a bet-the-company transaction or simply updating your standard employment forms, you will have the full attention of an experienced lawyer who asks the questions that haven’t occurred to you yet, who commands a whole spectrum of ways to engineer contract terms to address the issues specific to your business, and who knows how to negotiate – and how to close – to achieve your objectives.
M&A is a premier practice area of the Firm and our clients value our extensive experience — and the judgment and perspective that comes with it — to help them achieve their business imperatives and close their deal. At Kleinbard, your transaction will be staffed with seasoned attorneys who understand your business and have the experience to focus on and resolve the deal’s critical issues.
We advise buyers and sellers (both strategic and financial), including closely-held businesses, public companies, and private equity firms, in the evaluation, structuring, financing, negotiation, and documentation of all phases of the purchase or sale and other disposition of businesses and their assets. Our goal is to serve our clients with responsiveness and clear, practical advice so that transactions are completed in a timely, cost-effective manner.
Whether your transaction takes the form of a purchase or sale of stock or assets, a statutory merger, or an investment bank-led auction, our business lawyers all have the crucial combination of technical expertise to draft the necessary legal documents along with the business judgment to provide the real-world advice and counseling each deal requires.
The Firm has represented buyers and sellers of businesses in every industry we serve.
From letter of intent and due diligence, to negotiation/drafting of definitives and closing, our business lawyers can also provide clients with the advice and counseling resources they need in various deal-related practice areas – including those related to tax, employment, ERISA, executive compensation, and intellectual property.
