MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

Redman Lynch Washington’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice provides a disciplined, results-driven approach to the complexities of company acquisitions, mergers, asset sales and purchases, and corporate re-organisations. We advise both public and private clients across the spectrum, to maximise your value from public company transactions, private sales of whole or part interests in a business, or management buy-outs.

ACQUISITIONS

DISPOSALS AND TARGET COMPANIES

Disposing of assets or responding to an acquisition proposal demands focus on maximising value, avoiding disruption to your business, and considering whether the proposal is right for your business.  We add value by:

  • advising on responses to merger proposals and identifying transaction issues
  • advising on vendor due diligence processes and conducting legal due diligence
  • negotiating shareholders deeds, earn-outs and consideration structures
  • advising on transaction implementation and completion

The types of premises we assist clients to either lease or licence include primary production land, industrial sites, office buildings, shopping centres and yet-to-be constructed medical precincts.
