        San Diego Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) Attorneys

        Mergers and acquisitions are two transition options that allow businesses to grow in value, eliminate competition, increase market share, create supply chain advantages, and capitalize on economies of scale.

        A merger brings two companies together, and one company ceases to exist after the completion of the transaction. In an acquisition, one company purchases a majority or complete stake in another company.

        Our San Diego M&A attorneys serve as outside counsel to represent our clients, both buyers and sellers in M&A transactions. Since 2007, Jacko Law Group has partnered with businesses to provide legal guidance and the resources to successfully navigate some of the most complex business transactions and transitions.

        What Happens After An M&A Deal is Closed

        After you plan and execute a transition, it is important to consider the legal issues that can be triggered with ownership change. For example, changes may be required to business filings, corporate records, and contractual relationships, such as a company’s operating agreement. In highly regulated industries, it is just as important to engage counsel to structure the transaction as it is to maintain that relationship with counsel after an M&A deal closes to ensure legal compliance and proper transition of assets and liabilities.

        At Jacko Law Group, our M&A Attorneys, Corporate Counsel, and Regulatory Counsel, assist businesses, clients and firms during transitions and with exit planning - from structuring M&A transactions to succession planning. When a deal closes, a company is acquired or merges, management must be transitioned and operations integrated between the two companies.

        Whether you are planning a Merger or Acquisition, performing due diligence, or just need our specialized legal services during a transition, please contact our JLG Team today at (619) 298-2880 to schedule an initial consultation and speak to one of our attorneys.
