Mergers and Acquisitions
From a legal perspective a ‘merger’ is the consolidation of two companies into one to form a new company and an ‘acquisition’ is where one business takes ownership of the other company.
Simply put mergers and acquisitions are transactions relating to the ownership of businesses, whether that be buying another business or their work portfolio or merging with another business in the same industry or a complementary business.
The law relating to mergers and acquisitions is understandably complex and just as every business is different every transaction of this nature is different.
