Cross-Border Mergers and Acquisitions

In our global economy, the demand for cross-border mergers and acquisitions is at an all-time high. Businesses that would like to acquire or merge with an international corporation face unique challenges and need an attorney with the ability to work effectively to represent clients on local and international levels. At Woods Lonergan, we have extensive experience representing buyers and sellers in cross-border mergers and acquisitions in various industries. 

We have the resources and international contacts necessary to successfully protect your intellectual property rights, address any employment concerns, and complete post-closing integration. We have experience coordinating on aspects of mergers and acquisitions with special counsel within the U.S. and in foreign jurisdictions, when necessary. 

Private Equity

Private equity firms have industry-specific regulations that they need to abide by. They also face intense government scrutiny and the challenges of operating in a multi-faceted business environment. The mergers and acquisition team at Woods Lonergan works closely with private equity clients and their respective managers and partners in all aspects of the acquisition. We also assist clients with divestiture transactions and past acquisition integration. Our firm has represented many start-ups, growing, and mature businesses with a wide range of private capital transactions. We also provide advice to financial sponsors in the technology and growth industry transactions while organizing a variety of funds.

Distressed Mergers and Acquisitions

Acquiring or selling a distressed company is never an easy decision for investors. There may be incomplete or misleading information that can complicate the situation. This misinformation can impede a business’ growth, harming its reputation unfairly in some cases. The attorneys at Woods Lonergan assist clients throughout the entire process of buying and selling distressed and bankrupt corporations. In doing so, we minimize risks and maximize opportunities. Whatever the cost of the distress, our attorneys will work closely with our bankruptcy and finance attorneys to anticipate and address our clients’ needs. 

We will strategize and develop the best course of action. Our attorneys know how to conduct thorough due diligence investigations. We also have experience negotiating and drafting purchase agreements for distressed companies. We can evaluate any bankruptcy issues the company is having and their effect on employee rights. In some distressed mergers and acquisitions, we will need to evaluate pre-existing intellectual property and non-compete agreements. After we help our clients thoroughly assess a company’s assets, they can make better-informed decisions on buying and selling.
