Since inception, one of our Firm’s principal specialties has been in the area of mergers and acquisitions involving public and private companies, closely held family businesses and individuals. These services include the analysis, structure, negotiation, and preparation of documentation relating to the purchase, sale, merger, consolidation or recapitalization of operating businesses.
Lewitt Hackman’s Tax, Commercial Finance, Real Estate, Corporate, and Employment Practice Groups work together to provide the expertise required in such transactions.
Our Firm regularly renders services in connection with the purchase and sale of privately owned businesses, or interests therein, as well as the preparation of agreements between and resolution of disputes among shareholders or partners. In addition, the firm counsels clients with respect to the restructuring of ownership or recapitalization arising from the need for additional investors or as a result of an investor’s withdrawal or death.
