Mergers & Acquisitions
Taking the Guesswork out of Buying and Selling Your Business
Buying or selling a business is a daunting process. You must negotiate loans and lines of credit with banks and other lenders, purchase or lease real estate, engage in legal and financial due diligence, determine the structure of the sale, and account for the business’ contracts, employees, and other obligations. If your company is merging, selling, or expanding, speak to an attorney at the Law Offices of McLaughlin & Associates, P.C. We represent clients involved in the buying and selling of businesses and draft the initial proposals, bid packages, letters of intent, buy-sell agreements, and master and ancillary transaction documents for businesses throughout Chicago and its suburbs. We are experienced in negotiating and reviewing franchise agreements in a variety of industries.
In addition, our attorneys represent individuals looking to enter into businesses as new partners, shareholders, or investors, or in connection with internal buyouts within the company. We handle all aspects of the transaction, including drafting of asset purchase, stock purchase, and other agreements, coordination of legal, financial, and environmental due diligence, lease and real estate negotiations, employment issues, and lender document review.
We represent diverse businesses ranging from construction contractors, manufacturers, IT service providers, retailers, physicians, architects, and schools to name a few. Each client receives attentive and personalized advice related to the legal and financial issues surrounding the transaction.
