At The McWilliams Law Group, we guide businesses in the Irvine area and throughout California and Washington through every step of their growth process, whether they are going through a merger or an acquisition.

Detailed California and Washington business advocates understand mergers and acquisitions
With a merger, two separate companies combine to form a new enterprise. The two original companies cease to exist as separate businesses and instead continue to run as a single entity. This process is also known as consolidation. Our attorneys assist you through a smooth merger and then advise you on how to function as one business.
An acquisition occurs when one company purchases another. The acquiring company takes over the assets of the target company. Also known as a takeover, an acquisition can either be private or public, depending on whether the target company has publicly traded stocks. Whether your acquisition is friendly or hostile, our attorneys can help ensure that it is successful.
Skilled advisers provide comprehensive counsel for a smooth transition
The purpose of a merger or an acquisition is to strengthen the company while continuing to provide value. It is imperative to your company’s success that this deal is fully developed, covering every aspect to protect your business.
Our corporate law attorneys have extensive experience handling all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, including:
- Deal structure
- Method of payment
- Working capital adjustments
- Closing conditions
- Filings, notices and consents
- Restrictive covenants
There are many issues that can arise during a merger or acquisition. That’s why it’s essential to retain skilled counsel who can guide you through every step of the process. We can help ensure that you are compliant with fair competition and antitrust laws according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). We can also advise you on how to remain in good standing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Whether you are considering merging your business with another one or acquiring a new enterprise, our experienced corporate law attorneys will perform a detailed review of all relevant documents, draft new contracts and other agreements to ensure a smooth transition, assist with real estate transactions to accommodate your growth and continue to advise you when legal issues arise.
