A merger happens when separate companies are combined to form one company. In acquisitions, one company purchases the other. Efficient growth is critical for a business and can be achieved in many ways. Acquiring and combining businesses can enhance productivity within an operation. Sometimes reorganizing, selling part of the business or disposing assets can be beneficial. Ensuring these activities are completed effectively is imperative. Acquiring and blending separate companies into an existing company or establishing a new entity can offer many new opportunities. It can also have major implications for owners, managers, employees, stakeholders and customers. An experienced business transaction attorney can provide advice and draft, review, and negotiate merger and acquisition agreements, joint venture agreements, corporate reorganization agreements, and compensation packages for certain personnel.
Mergers and acquisitions represent landmark events for companies. These transactions must be handled carefully with an eye toward accomplishing strategic objectives. Attorney Thomas Carter has experience with mergers and acquisitions, and he can explore the options, evaluate potential risk, and prepare the company for consolidating two businesses. Our firm handles all legal aspects involved with purchasing, selling, and reorganizing a company. This may include corporate reorganization agreements, merger and acquisition agreements, and joint venture agreements.
In real estate law matters, The Law Offices of Thomas S. Carter assists with a wide range of transactional matters that include leasing, selling, financing, and developing properties. These activities can involve commercial leases, rental and lease agreements, and purchase/sale agreements. In real estate transactions, there are certain obligations which both sides must fulfill. A seller of commercial or residential property must make declarations disclosing relevant information about the property. Potential buyers must be advised of defects, electrical and plumbing issues, neighborhood concerns, noise issues, and any other situation that needs to be considered prior to the purchase. When these issues are not addressed upfront, it can open the business up to potential future lawsuits.
It is not uncommon for construction contracts to require modifications which can reflect updates for a development project. When both parties agree, an experienced business lawyer can draft paperwork to attach to the original contract. If the parties are unwilling to compromise, it may require negotiation to resolve the dispute. These actions can prevent construction delays and potential future liability.
