Fromberg Edelstein Fromberg is well versed in negotiating, structuring and implementing commercial transactions such as acquisitions (stock and asset) and mergers (stock, cash, etc.). As our clients’ businesses expand and contract, we approach each transaction with their financial considerations and long-term strategic plans in mind. Our attorneys carefully listen to clients’ objectives before aggressively pursuing their interests in any transaction.
When our clients buy or sell some part of an entity, we advise and assist them with due diligence, including sales agreements, relevant contracts, licensing, and indemnifications, negotiating representations and warranties. Our attorneys are experienced working with private equity investors, as well as institutional lenders and lender groups. We are also available to assist with lease transactions, as well as estoppels, consents and waivers as part of the deal.
Fromberg Edelstein Fromberg also advises clients as they establish and implement transitions of ownership to partners, family members or chosen employees. We understand that an owner’s interest in a closely held business may be his or her largest and most important asset. To prepare for transitions in ownership, we analyze the business’s needs and existing ownership structure, as well as the goals of its current and future owners.
Another form of business transition is the process of dissolution, or winding up. A business “divorce” involves issues of control, ownership and distribution of property, as well as potential payments. These business decisions are often accompanied by high-stakes conflict and intense emotions. We lend a depth of experience in negotiation and, when necessary, litigation to resolve disagreements as part of the dissolution process.
