A merger or acquisition may be the most important deal your company is ever involved with, and you're sure to have lots of legal questions about mergers and acquisitions. Whether you are selling your business or buying another, your lawyer will generally want to understand the proposed terms of the deal, who at each company must approve the deal in order for it to proceed, and any relevant financing terms. If you are involved in a merger, your lawyer will want to know if the merger is a true merger of equals. If you are involved in an acquisition, your lawyer will need to know if the current offer is for stock or assets. You can learn more about your legal questions about mergers and acquisitions here.
