Mergers & Acquisitions
Many M&A transactions are structured so that the selling parties continue to own an interest in the business and often continue to work in the business on behalf of the purchaser. When this occurs, it is often possible to organize the transaction so that the continued ownership interest is received on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. The tax savings from this arrangement can be significant, and the attorneys at Decker Jones are familiar with structuring transactions to achieve this goal. In addition, our attorneys are experienced in the preparation of employment agreements in connection with those who will continue to work in the business.
