Our clients engage us for various phases of the mergers and acquisitions process. First, our team members conduct due diligence on the potential acquisition, and when a not-for-all-cashdeal is considered, we conduct due diligence on the acquirer. We also strategize with our clients and attorneys regarding valuation and measurements to use in an earn-out situation. We advise buyers and sellers of the tax opportunities regarding purchase price allocation. In the covenants and warrantees area of agreements, we work with our clients and their attorneys to ensure they are not warranting something that is not valid or warrantable. We also let our clients know when it’s not in their best interests to close a deal. In those cases, we help our clients understand why we advise them to walk away.
