Buying and selling of businesses are typically structured as either a merger or an acquisition. An acquisition can take place when a person or another business purchases all the assets of another, free and clear of any liabilities. Another type of acquisition is when a buyer purchases all the outstanding shares in a company and takes over the actual business and not just the assets. A merger occurs when two businesses combine operations and continue operation as one business. Please read on to view the lawyer listings or review more information.
