Mergers And Acquisitions
Everyday, small, large and family-owned businesses throughout Colorado are faced with an action involving a merger or acquisition. If you have a business and are considering a merger, strategic sale, acquisition or if you’re a family-owned business looking to expand or need an exit plan, our experienced business attorneys at Gantenbein Law Firm, in Denver, Colorado, can help guide you through these often complex processes to maximize a successful outcome.
A merger is the process of two separate entities combining their forces to establish one new joint organization (one does not acquire the other). A merger is seen as two equals making the decision to become one. An acquisition is the process of acquiring, gaining or taking over an entity (business). In an acquisition, the company that’s acquired will no longer exist. Typically an acquisition is a larger company or entity buying out a smaller company. An acquisition can be hostile or friendly.
Generally speaking, when a merger or acquisition occurs, it’s done to improve the overall performance. It’s essential that mergers or acquisitions have the maximum legal structures in place for a successful conclusion. A well-designed merger, acquisition or sale can create growth and success for both companies. Our business attorneys are knowledgeable negotiating, overcoming obstacles and offering the best options to bring you that success.
