McHenry County Corporate Law Attorneys Representing Clients in Business Acquisitions, Sales, and Mergers

Many people assume business owners run their day-to-day operations. In some situations, this is true. If you own a small business, you may be hard at work all day, every day. You are the jack of all trades. Yet if you own a larger business, you may be one of numerous owners and have a successful management team who runs a tight ship. Yet whatever the size of your business or your specific role, as an owner and/or officer, you have to make the tough decisions. These include when to expand through an acquisition or merger or when to move on by selling. Once you are ready to consider these options, the next step is to work with an experienced corporate law attorney from Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC to ensure you get a fair deal.

We Can Help With Acquisitions, Sales, and Mergers

At Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC, our corporate law attorneys are here to help you with:

  • Acquisitions: When your business is thriving and growing, it may come time to look for other operations to purchase. This can help your business diversify and gain new revenue streams, obtain additional property, equipment and inventory, and acquire the talent you need to improve your bottom line. It can also increase your share of a particular market. There are a number of ways to structure a business acquisition, and our attorneys at Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC are ready to handle all types of acquisitions. We can help you negotiate the price and other terms, draft the contract, and close the deal.
  • Sales: There are countless reasons why you may be interested in selling your business. It may be time to retire. You might be ready to move on to your next idea. Or maybe you have to admit you have taken your original concept as far as you can. Whatever your reason, our business transaction lawyers are prepared to represent you in the sale of your business from start to finish.
  • Mergers: Your business and another company may be interesting in coming together to create an entirely new, third entity. Or a merger could seem more like a takeover, with the remaining entity carrying your or the other business's name. Within these different outcomes there are a number of different types of mergers, including vertical and horizontal mergers. We are prepared to help you structure the merger, whatever the type, and negotiate all of the minute terms. We will also ensure your corporate merger abides by the Illinois Business Corporation Act.

The Benefits of a Business Acquisition and Sale Attorney

Whether your business is involved with a sale, acquisition, or merger, the transaction requires a complex contract, which will include representations and warranties, definitions and descriptions, non-compete agreements, choice of law and other forum provisions, intellectual property provisions, confidentiality agreements, potential remedy provisions, tax provisions, and more. The cost and structure of the transaction will require in-depth negotiations, and what you and the other parties agree upon must be accurately translated to paper. At Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC, we are ready to represent you and your business's interests during an acquisition, sale, or merger. Contact us today at 815-338-3838 to schedule a consultation.
