Mergers & Acquisitions

Growing your business through acquisition?  Ready to sell?  Norris McLaughlin’s attorneys are here to help. 

Who We Are

Our firm includes attorneys whose practice focuses on guiding clients through acquisitions, investments, and divestures.  We scale our services to the size and complexity of the transaction, whether it’s the sale of a local business to a longtime employee, the acquisition of a 500-employee regional competitor, or even an international business transaction.

Our core M&A attorneys have a team of specialists – including our talented tax, environmental, labor & employment, and intellectual property attorneys who routinely support our clients’ transactions, enhancing efficiency by handling everything in-house.  We also collaborate with our colleagues in the Meritas and Legal Network International affiliations of select independent law firms located in every state in the U.S. and many countries around the world. Our membership in these organizations gives our clients immediate access to high-quality talent and legal services in other jurisdictions.

Who We Help

Selling a business is often a once-in-a-lifetime event for small to midsized business owners.  We can help no matter your business size or to whom you are selling.  Our attorneys routinely help professional practices, restaurant owners, regional commercial businesses, or e-commerce business owners sell their businesses.  For our larger corporate and commercial clients, we work closely with their business development team, in-house counsel, and management to develop deal and acquisition strategy.

Acquisitions must to be handled efficiently so the resources can be best spent on growing the new operations.  We recognize the need to balance risk mitigation versus cost, and collaborate with our client’s acquisition team and advisors to develop the best approach.
