Mergers & Acquisitions

If you're considering merging with or acquiring another company, MBM Commercial can guide you through the legal complexities of these transactions to ensure a successful outcome.

The M&A process can be intricate, involving multiple steps and legal considerations - all that need your attention at the same time as you are running your business. MBM Commercial provides comprehensive legal support throughout the M&A process, from the initial stages of due diligence to the final integration phase. Each step is tailored to the specific needs and goals of our clients, aiming to streamline the process, mitigate risks, and ensure a successful transaction.

Whatever the complexity or size of the deal, you benefit from high-quality legal, commercial and strategic advice. We act on both high-profile, complex transactions to smaller, more straightforward deals, never losing sight of the fact that small deals can be life-changing for the individuals involved. We handle all aspects of M&A deals from start to finish including:

Preparation and Due Diligence

We assist in conducting a comprehensive review of the target company's financial, legal, and operational aspects. This involves scrutinising contracts, financial records, intellectual property rights, employee matters, regulatory compliance, and any potential liabilities, identifying potential risks and liabilities that may impact the transaction.

Deal Structuring and Negotiation

We work with clients to structure the deal in a manner that aligns with their goals. This involves negotiating the terms of the transaction, including purchase price, payment structure, warranties, indemnities, and any contingencies.

Drafting and Reviewing Legal Documents

We assist in drafting the necessary legal documents, including letters of intent, confidentiality agreements, purchase agreements, shareholder agreements, and any other contracts required for the transaction. We ensure these documents accurately reflect the negotiated terms and protect client interests.

Regulatory Compliance

M&A transactions often involve regulatory hurdles. We help navigate antitrust laws, competition regulations, and other legal requirements to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Closing the Deal

We guide clients through the closing process, ensuring all necessary documents are signed, funds are transferred, and all conditions precedent are met for a successful closure.

Post-Merger Integration

After the deal is completed, we continue to support our clients in the integration phase. This includes handling the legal aspects of merging companies, such as combining contracts, employee matters, and any ongoing legal issues that might arise post-acquisition.
