Questions To Ask When Hiring a Business Merger Lawyer
To ensure that your business doesn’t get the short end of a deal, make sure you hire a lawyer who will scrutinize every legal aspect of the transaction. Here are questions to ask when hiring a business merger lawyer:
- Is my company ready for a merger? Ask the lawyer if they would be able to do a ‘legal checkup’ beforehand. An experienced lawyer would be able to notice missed opportunities as well as areas of concern in your business.
- What type of companies have you worked with? It will be advantageous to you if your lawyer is experienced with tax laws and accounting systems as well. This could ensure that the lawyer considers all aspects of the deal and doesn’t leave anything out.
- What are the legal costs involved? Depending on how complex your case is, the costs involved could vary extremely. Asking for an approximation regarding the bill can be helpful, but in many instances can be quite unreliable.
