Mergers & Acquisitions

Practice Areas

Many business managers and owners will assess their need or want of merging their company or corporation. Most mergers are discussed or go through because they can increase profitability or shares in the market. The advantages and disadvantages of such transactions are numerous; the process to complete them, however, can become complicated quickly, such as financial issues through the federal government and stockholders. Smaller businesses may not have to worry about problems stemming from approval, unlike larger corporations do. A business attorney in Des Moines at Iowa Defenders can help you get through this process quickly and effectively so that you can continue helping your business succeed.

Preparing for what could go wrong in a business transaction is a step that corporations and small businesses should do throughout the evaluation and negotiation process, which will start from the ground up. All financial statements, employees, profit margins, and costs of consolidation should be assessed to know and understand the true value of a company before a price is brought to the table. Creating a new company mission statement and plan is also an important part of this process, allowing the new business entity to be firmly formed after the restructuring is finalized.

For most new or restructured businesses, a detailed business plan is a necessity for success in the first few years.
