Mergers and Acquisitions Laws in Massachusetts

Mergers and acquisitions of Massachusetts companies can be complex and require a significant amount of legal guidance. Buyers and sellers need a legal advocate who will diligently protect their rights and help ensure the transitional phase of mergers and acquisitions is timely, legal, and fair. Shapiro Law Group, PC, has the experience and knowledge of Massachusetts business law to handle any size merger and acquisition.


Mergers and acquisitions entail more than physical property and assets. Shareholder approval may be needed before the deal can be legalized. Stock options may also need negotiating. The options for shareholders who disapprove of the merger or acquisition may also need outlined. The fate of intellectual property may need to be addressed and outlined in contracts. The fate of accounts and who will take on any liabilities and debts of either business needs to be decided. Attention and legal protection may have to be given to what will become of a business name. A decision about a new name may need to be made and approved through legal documentation. Whenever a merger or acquisition entails complete cooperation by all parties involved, the process can be handled more efficiently. Both parties can agree to terms of contracts and feel secure in the outcome. There may be times when contention holds up the process and requires the skills of an experienced negotiator in order to reach a favorable resolution. The high value of some mergers and acquisitions in Massachusetts also heightens the need for a legal advocate who will fight for a client’s best interest.
