Mergers and Acquisitions Lawyers Los Angeles

At Steinbrecher & Span LLP, our approach to M&A reflects our belief that experience, sound preparation and thoughtful deal structuring are the essential ingredients in providing effective representation for our clients in M&A transactions, including joint ventures, strategic alliances, other forms of teaming agreement, mergers, stock or asset acquisitions and dispositions, and other types of business reorganization.  Our experience across the entire spectrum of M&A transactions permits us to focus quickly on clients’ needs and the most effective structures and mechanisms to achieve their goals.  From the outset we work with our clients to identify the right mix of resources, including assistance with due diligence, structuring, contractual arrangements, legal and tax strategies, intellectual property, employment and other issues likely to arise in any such transaction, alliance and leasing relationships.

Our M&A representation includes:

  • Assessing the alternative potential transaction structures early in the transaction in order to determine the optimal form.
  • Negotiation and drafting of term sheets, letters of intent or memoranda of understanding and definitive documentation pertaining to:
    • Mergers as well as stock and asset purchases and sales
    • Private-equity sponsored investments and leveraged buyouts
    • Strategic investments and joint ventures
    • Restructurings, recapitalizations and workouts
    • Spin-offs
    • Taxable and tax-deferred mergers and reorganizations
  • Due diligence assistance, including on intellectual property matters.
  • Coordination of efforts of clients and other professional advisors (investment bankers, accountants and other consultants) with the goal of achieving a timely closing of the transaction.

We have represented buyers, sellers, financing sources and other interested parties in transactions.  Our experience includes privately negotiated purchases, auction style bidding and a wide range of joint venture arrangements.
