For KKG clients, working on mergers and acquisitions includes planning for the transaction, which may begin years in advance; it is not confined only to the actual transaction. Both buyers and sellers are well advised to plan as far in advance as possible. KKG assists clients with such planning. Most sellers need to anticipate and address profitability objectives, tax consequences, personnel transitions and other matters. Buyers, on the other hand, need to plan for adequate long-term financing, efficient business organizational structure and a stable management team. KKG is experienced at providing both buyers and sellers with the needed experience to assist with such planning.
KKG has advised many clients who have both acquired and disposed of professional practices, manufacturing and distribution enterprises and service retail businesses. Our lawyers have represented clients in many difficult and non-traditional situations: we have often represented clients who re-purchased their own businesses, who became involved in litigation among one or more of the transaction parties, or who needed to deal with adversarial suppliers or customers of the buyer or seller. The breadth of that experience benefits KKG clients in every merger and acquisition transaction.
