With an M&A Lawyer from Sequoia Legal, you’ll enjoy a more cost-efficient way to merge or restructure your business while having the opportunity to dedicate your time to the business matters that you handle best.
We’ll become an essential part of your team, overseeing important legal and compliance matters so you can get to work building your business.
Our M&A attorneys do more than just make sure you stay within the realms of the law during your acquisition – we handle the whole process for you.
Right from the early stages of your acquisition, our lawyers will be by your side, analyzing any possible issues you might encounter and preparing for the next steps. We’ll ensure you understand exactly what is required of you and your business during the deal, make our recommendations, and get to work on the paperwork required to facilitate the deal.
Our business acquisition lawyers utilize a tried-and-tested process to ensure your success, whether you’re buying or selling your business. For mergers and similar deals between two existing entities, you can expect to go through the following process:
Before you go ahead with making the deal, we’ll discuss your needs, your desired outcomes, and what you should be looking for in a sale. We’ll then help you prepare the business for sale.
We’ll start with a baseline acquisition structure, ensuring that your team understands what is about to happen, and how the process is likely to unfold, and over what timeline.
We handle the letter of intent, which outlines the understanding and agreements between the two parties involved with the deal. Our experts will also organize and draft other preliminary documents.
Our legal due diligence review involves the analysis of potential liabilities relating to real estate, employment, export compliance matters, and more. This protects your business from future legal issues or suits.
From purchase agreements, non-compete agreements, escrow and consulting agreements, and more, we’ll draft and negotiate documents to ensure that all parties are happy.
We’ll help you maximize tax benefits, reduce unnecessary tax expenditure, and ensure your company’s financial structure is streamlined and ready to go.
Your business deal will likely involve other professionals, from investment bankers and insurance brokers to foreign attorneys. We’ll coordinate with all of those third parties in the deal to remove more of the burden on you and your team.
Sequoia Legal provides ongoing legal support as your business grows and expands, handling transactional activities and related compliance matters, post-closing issues, and more.
Beyond the process listed above, our acquisition attorneys will ensure you remain compliant at every stage and assist with a range of other legal considerations. M&A attorneys from Sequoia Legal take an active and long-term interest in your business and success, ensuring you are ready to grow by handling this wide range of legal matters.
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.
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.
Antitrust refers to laws in the United States designed to stop anticompetitive behavior. We’ll ensure that your merger is not at risk of falling foul of these antitrust laws and help protect your business against potential lawsuits.
Our acquisition attorneys will also renegotiate 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 that provide services and who are expected to continue working with the company after the merger.
Our team will oversee the creation of a new employee policy, as well as analyzing 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 expertly.
Any acquisition or merger is bound to face major tax burdens. Our tax lawyers will consider the structure of the transaction and the future structure of the business to determine all of your tax liabilities and ways that we can minimize your tax expenditure and streamline your finances.
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 specialist international merger lawyers who can assist you with making deals abroad, acquiring foreign businesses, and determining what laws apply to you.
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.
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.

Sequoia Legal found subtle legal loopholes in some of our confidentiality agreements that could have spelled disaster for our small business. Fortunately, with the help of Sequoia Legal, we were able to get these leaks plugged before they did any serious damage to our company.
Our company operates in a highly regulated industry. Sequoia Legal has been our go-to law firm for years now. I am happy to say that we have never suffered a serious regulatory noncompliance problem, and Sequoia Legal has quickly resolved the few minor problems that did arise.
Our company’s trade secret protection system was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. Sequoia helped us revamp the system so that it complies with both state and federal law. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.
We ran into a hit on the SDN list. It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, and Sequoia Legal helped us resolve the issue in a quick and cost-efficient manner. Very professional and knowledgeable.
A couple of years ago, our company had no compliance program to speak of, and we were barely aware of the existence of OFAC regulations. Sequoia Legal helped us get our house in order, and we have had no problems since then.
We contacted Sequoia Law after an internal audit revealed that our company had inadvertently committed two substantial OFAC violations over the past two years. We chose the path of voluntary disclosure to OFAC and received lenient penalties. Many thanks to Sequoia for their adroit handling of the matter.
We are an out-of-state company that hired Sequoia Legal to crack down on some Colorado companies that were blatantly infringing our trademarks and software copyrights. Sequoia Legal shut them down in a matter of weeks and secured generous compensation for our damages.`Sequoia Legal epitomizes professionalism.
Our previous attorney had drafted us NDAs that were so full of holes that it left unscrupulous former employees almost complete freedom to deal with our trade secrets as they wished. Sequoia Legal helped us plug those loopholes and prevent further leakage of valuable trade secrets. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
We hired Sequoia Legal to help us organize and protect our intellectual property needs. They identified problems we didn’t even know we had, and they helped us head off serious oversights that might have bankrupted our company if we hadn’t caught them in time.
Sequoia Legal has been helping us with regulatory compliance matters for years now. So far, we have not had a single complaint lodged against us by any patient or entity, and no enforcement actions have been implemented or threatened. I can’t praise them enough.
