Mergers & Acquisitions

A principal focus of Califf & Harper, P.C.'s practice is mergers and acquisitions. Our attorneys devote a significant portion of their time to facilitating the structuring, financing and successful completion of the full range of acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, recapitalizations and other transactions undertaken by clients. We routinely represent clients in the purchase and sale of large and small businesses.

In the course of our engagement we are also able to call on any needed expertise in disciplines such as tax, environmental, creditors' rights, labor, executive compensation, ERISA, private equity/venture capital, insurance, intellectual property, real estate and litigation. Our mergers and acquisitions practice also includes counseling management and Boards of Directors regarding fiduciary duty and other corporate law issues, and the defense of corporate transactions in litigation brought to challenge their legality.

The firm has represented purchasers, sellers, financing sources, management, and advisors in a wide variety of transactions involving both public and private companies, including stock and asset acquisitions of both entire companies and subsidiaries or divisional enterprises, mergers involving stock-for-stock, cash and other forms of consideration, tender offers, leveraged buyouts, spinoffs, recapitalizations, joint ventures and strategic investments.
