Whether you’re in the earliest stage of a merger with your competitor, purchasing a distressed business or selling your company, The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer can help. The complexities of mergers, acquisitions, investments and the disposal of businesses and assets create numerous pitfalls that this firm’s sophisticated team can provide.

The Sale and Purchase of Businesses in California

While many entrepreneurs start new businesses by forming a new company, such as a limited liability company (LLC) or corporation, many others jump ahead and purchase an existing business, entering into the fray with a bit of an edge. The business attorneys at The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer address your concerns throughout the entire purchase process, evaluating risks (both personal and business) and liabilities (such as ongoing litigation or debt) with regard to the purchase. They also provide counseling to you on the future of your business, from tax concerns to employee contracts and potential expansions. Since many clients are entering a brand-new field, the attorneys also review the general needs in the industry, understand your experience in running the business and businesses like it, and they evaluate support staff, other advisers and client potentials.

Guiding Sophisticated Companies through Acquisitions

Contact our firm

When your goal is to expand through acquisition or merger, the firm will discuss with you the available options and how the merger or acquisition will change your existing business. Much like taking over an existing company as a “new” business, the attorneys review assets, risks, rewards and liabilities, working closely with you to succeed in a meaningful resolution of the many issues that might arise in a mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transaction.

Divestiture of a Company

On the other hand, the firm’s clients are not always buying companies or merging — oftentimes the firm assists with the sale of businesses. If you are considering the sale of your business, accomplished corporate lawyers at The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer may help arrange and review the sale in order to maximize your profit as the seller. By focusing on your needs and objectives — planning for retirement, leaving the business, avoiding liens or encumbrances or passing down the business through the family — the attorneys at the firm can help.
