Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A)is a sub-practice area under corporate law. Corporations are often involved in merging with other businesses, or divesting portions of the existing business. M&A lawyers assist their clients with the appropriate financing for mergers and acquisitions and provide advice concerning the drafting, negotiation, and performance of contracts for the sale of portions of the business. The vast majority of M&A attorneys work in large or mid-size law firms.
