The outlook for buying and selling businesses appears to be improving. But even after buyers and sellers have shaken hands on the main deal points, there are still some big hurdles to jump over before the deal is across the finish line. Besides the purchase price and closing date, what are the other principal deal points that need to be negotiated? What securities laws are triggered? Is senior management (of buyer and seller) focusing on what happens to the combined business after the deal closes and the buyer gets the keys? What are the duties of the board of directors in private acquisition transactions? Are there ways to reduce the exposure of officers and directors involved in negotiating and approving the deal? Are there special considerations when selling a closely-held or family-owned business? Join Nashville attorney Trace Blankenship of Bone McAllester Norton PLLC as he explores these questions (and others) and discusses best practices for successfully completing a merger or acquisition.
