Other Merger and Acquisition Services Our Denver M&A Law Firm Handles

The services detailed previously are but a brief selection and explanation of what a merger and acquisition lawyer from our firm can offer to our M&A clients. As mentioned, we work with parties to M&As throughout the entire process until its completion, from planning to closing and beyond. We perform the following process, whether you are acquiring a competitor or accepting venture capital.

Other legal services.

Due Diligence

Due diligence is essential in any deal. It means ensuring that all the right documentation is complete and filed correctly by both parties involved with the deal. We’ll analyze all liabilities, schedules, tax information, and more. We’ll ensure that everything is in order before a deal goes ahead.

Business Structuring & Corporate Governance

We’ll help you organize your business structure and oversee the agreement of corporate governance moving forward. This also involves accessing minutes from board meetings, shareholder information and material, incorporating documents, and more. Our legal due diligence review will identify any potential liabilities and issues before you commit to a merger or acquisition.

Antitrust Legal Issues

Antitrust refers to laws in the United States designed to stop anticompetitive behavior. We’ll ensure that your merger or acquisition is not at risk of falling foul of these antitrust laws and help protect your business against potential lawsuits.

Contracts Renegotiation

Our acquisition attorneys will also renegotiate third-party contracts and ensure that you get the best possible deal when moving forward with a merger or acquisition. This relates to any contract that either party (business) has with contractors, employees, or other professionals who provide services and are expected to continue working with the company after the merger.

Employee policy

Our team will oversee the creation of a new employee policy, as well as analyze existing employee policy for legal compliance and see whether it can be improved for both the business and employees. Our knowledge of state and local employment laws means we’ll handle this quickly and diligently.

International Mergers & Acquisitions

International M&A deals come with their own set of challenges. When looking to do cross-border M&As and other similar deals outside U.S. borders, you need a corporate mergers and acquisitions law firm with international mergers and acquisition lawyers who can effectively represent your interests in Colorado and around the world.

International mergers pose additional problems and complications in that they involve a series of additional laws and regulations that may be entirely different from what you expect to see in the United States, or more specifically in Colorado.

We have a team of international merger lawyers who can assist you with making deals abroad, acquiring foreign businesses, and determining what laws apply to you.

Distressed M&A

Distressed mergers or acquisitions, whereby a company is effectively forced to sell or merge because of financial obligations to creditors, is a tricky process. Our M&A lawyers not only understand the legal requirements in this process, but we can assist in matters relating to pension contributions and obligations, due diligence, warranty, insurance, and board restructuring that are extremely important when overseeing a deal like this.

Private Equity M&A

If you’re operating a private equity firm, you know just how burdensome the regulations and government scrutiny can be. Our attorneys work closely with you to handle the unique challenges your company faces, assisting you in navigating various financial and corporate matters while you handle your day-to-day operations.‍

We’ll ensure you always make an informed decision when buying or selling and that you don’t fall foul of complex laws relating to private equity companies.

Our Successful Cases

No Penalty Voluntary Disclosures to US Gov

Companies routinely face complex situations when exporting or doing business internationally. There is a complex set of laws and regulations applicable to the persons, places and products involved in international business. Businesses sometimes end up violating or running afoul of these highly technical and complicated rules. Sequoia Legal has represented various US and foreign companies in conducting internal investigations relating to suspected violations of US sanctions and export controls. Following completion of these internal investigations, where necessary, we have assisted clients in voluntarily disclosing suspected violations to US authorities and have obtained favorable outcomes, including reduced penalties or no penalties. This has allowed our clients to sleep at night and continue to expand and do business internationally in compliance with applicable US law.

Rock Solid FCPA and Export Compliance Programs

Our Denver export compliance law firm has extensive experience with export administration regulations, the FCPA and international trade and can assist clients with developing export control and FCPA compliance programs. We ensure each client follows appropriate FCPA, export control compliance and foreign trade regulations for their industry, and our clients hail from nearly every industry sector. The attorneys at Sequoia Legal have successfully assisted and provided continued guidance for several international companies regarding the internal implementation of FCPA and export compliance plans. These companies employ and engage in various transactions with individuals and companies around the world. To ensure continued compliance with US sanctions laws and regulations following the implementation of the FCPA and export compliance programs, Sequoia Legal has conducted company audits, interviews and internal FCPA training programs. Due to the diligence of the Sequoia Legal team, zero issues or enforcement actions have been taken by the US government against Sequoia's clients for any FCPA or export related matter. An investment in a Sequoia Legal compliance plan has saved our clients time, focus and money.

Successful Sale of Technology Startup

Our team at Sequoia Legal regularly helps sellers and buyers of businesses navigate the intricacies of the purchase and sale process to help them achieve their dreams. In this case, Sequoia Legal was brought on by the owners of a local technology company in a sale to a strategic acquirer with a total transaction value in the multiple millions. We successfully negotiated transaction agreements, including due diligence with the buyer and post-closing employment agreements, and closed the transaction within an expedited 30 days period. As part of this process, we helped educate the sellers through their first transaction and work through the emotional roller coaster of selling your business.

Searching for Search Fund Success

And Finding It! Sequoia Legal regularly helps search funds and individuals find, acquire and successfully build new businesses. Our client was a search funder focused on acquiring a company in the professional services industry. We assisted in negotiating several LOI's that fell through, but as a result of that process, we found the right acquisition fit and assisted our client in executing an LOI, conducting due diligence, structuring the deal, negotiating the purchase agreement, working with the SBA and completing a deal that included a cash payment, SBA loan and seller financing with a variable note that reduced if certain revenue metrics were not achieved. We then assisted our client with several "tuck-in" acquisitions to further augment and accelerate the client's goals and exponentially grow revenue.

FAQs

Still, have questions about our corporate mergers and acquisitions law firm? No problem. Take a look at these answers to some of the most common questions we get asked, and if you still have questions, don’t hesitate to simply give us a call!

Does Your Lawyer Manage The M&A Process To The Completion?

We don’t just make mergers easier – we facilitate them from start to finish. Beginning with due diligence and initial discussion and moving on to facilitating and drafting agreements, we’ll handle every step of the merger and acquisition process to ensure that your deal goes ahead smoothly.

Sequoia Legal also takes an active interest in the success of your business, meaning we don’t just intend to get the merger or acquisition done, but we work to obtain the best possible terms for all involved.

That means carefully crafted agreements, attention paid to your tax affairs and obligations, and true dedication from legal professionals to help your business get ahead and grow as soon as the deal is done.


Can Your Law Firm Represent Our Business Confidently To The Opposing Board Of Directors?

Yes. Sequoia Legal is known in the Denver business community for its dedication to local small and medium-sized enterprises. Our team utilizes experience working with prestigious global law firms to bring that Big Law skill to local companies, and this really shines in our merger and acquisition work.

Our team’s experience with corporate and international law gives us the confidence and knowledge required to represent your business to an opposing board of directors and to draw up purchase agreements that will determine the future of your business and be accepted by all parties involved.


What Can I Expect From An M&A Attorney?

As your M&A attorney, we’ll represent your business during every step of the merger or acquisition process. We start by preparing your business for a sale or merger, drafting documents, overseeing legal obligations, obtaining third-party consent, conducting your due diligence reviews, and working with you to draw up purchase agreements that comply with the law and fit both parties’ needs. 

Our lawyers work with your before, during, and after the merger to ensure that every piece of paperwork is correctly filed, every agreement is accepted by all parties involved, and that all legal and tax obligations are met. We’ll then work with you on post-closing matters to ensure your business is fully ready to go.


Should I Hire a Colorado Lawyer When Buying Or Selling a Company?

100% you should. Buying or selling a company brings with it a plethora of legal and tax obligations that could land you in serious trouble if not properly dealt with and complied with.

As your merger and acquisition lawyer, we’ll handle all those obligations, file all necessary paperwork and assist with agreements, obtain third-party consents, and set your business up for success. Without a legal advisor who has extensive experience in these types of transactions, you may never know what fatal flaws were made during the sale or acquisition process until it’s too late.
