Mergers and
Acquisitions

Overview

Approach every transaction through a structured project management process. That's what we mean by a different kind of practice.

OUR Team

At BCF, we believe that the expertise, creativity, dedication and passion of our professionals are key to the success of a transaction. We also believe that thorough planning and management of the process allows transactions to be carried out efficiently, on schedule and according to budget. No one likes bad surprises but our clients appreciate the advice of creative business attorneys when obstacles occur. At each stage of a transaction, we call upon our tax, financing, intellectual property, real estate, competition law and employment law specialists as needed.

THOROUGH PLANNING

A full understanding of the strategic and financial issues specific to a transaction is essential to allow our professionals to work hand-in-hand with our clients in the pursuit of their goals. We therefore place great importance on planning the purchase or sale of a business. This stage allows us to put in place the right team, establish a work schedule and estimate the costs.

PERFORMING THE MATTER

Our professionals must keep the whole picture of a transaction in mind at all times, without losing sight of the details and adapting to the unexpected. In performing their work, they pay particular attention to coordinating efforts and reacting quickly to events. We approach each stage of a transaction proactively. We also believe in sharing information for efficient management and for ensuring our clients are continually aware of how their deal is progressing.

OUR NEGOTIATION PHILOSOPHY

When our clients ask us to help them negotiate a transaction, we approach the negotiations constructively and creatively. We attempt to identify solutions which go beyond traditional legal advice. Our professionals know the intricacies of negotiating and can develop strategies based on our clients’ interests and objectives. They approach each discussion with an open mind, paying particular attention to understanding the concerns of everyone involved, which allows solutions to emerge that support the fundamental goals of our clients.
