Mergers, Acquisitions and Restructuring

Mergers, Acquisitions and Restructuring

Successful mergers and acquisitions require experience and a dedicated team. At Beck Legal, our corporate team will become a part of your team from the get go and you will have the opportunity to meet every lawyer working on the matter. Mergers and acquisitions move quickly, and it is important to have a legal team that has the resources and experience required to make it happen.
To us, a merger, acquisition or restructure is not just a deal value or number. We want to understand the drivers behind it and what your business wants to achieve, so that we can deliver on the outcomes you are looking for.

Our Restructuring Services

We advise our clients on structuring and restructuring as both a stand-alone matter independent of any transaction, and as part of any proposed or desired sale, merger or acquisition. We can advise you on the ideal business structure for risk management and asset protection purposes, as well as how to structure your business in a way that is most attractive to a potential buyer or that will allow you to cater for succession planning and bring in new investors in the future. We can also advise on simplifying your structure to ease the compliance burden.

We work closely with your accountants and financial planners to ensure everyone is on the same page and your desired results are achieved.
