Mergers And Acquisitions
Some of the best ways to ensure that your company is advancing and adapting can be found through sales, mergers and acquisitions with other companies:
- Acquisition: Your company collects the assets of another for its own use. An acquisition can shift control of everything from physical office buildings to publicly traded stocks. In some instances, an acquired company may still exist in name and function but merely be controlled by the purchasing parent company.
- Sale: If you need to reduce your company’s size to protect profits, meet legal regulations, or any other reason, you can sell it off to another company. Any money gained through the selling of your business or a portion of it may be distributed among owners, shareholders, lenders, and others.
- Merger: Other than directly buying or selling a business, companies can grow together through a merger that combines both of them into one new company. This is sometimes called a consolidation and will only be the result if at least one of the merging parties ceases to exist afterward.

Employment and Non-Compete Agreements
Most employment relationships begin with optimism regarding the employee’s role in the company. But changing needs, interpersonal issues, and other factors can sour this relationship. In some circumstances, an employee may leave the company and attempt to improperly benefit by violating the terms of a non-compete agreement. In other circumstances, an employer may inappropriately use a non-compete agreement as a sword rather than a shield for the business. Our attorneys have successfully fought on behalf of defendant former employees who are being wrongfully prevented from engaging in work by their former employers who have no basis to keep them from doing so.
