Transfer of Ownership Interests
SSE&C represents clients in structuring, negotiating and executing transactions ranging from the acquisition of “mom and pop” coffee shops to acquiring multi-million dollar manufacturing facilities. Our attorneys have experience working with equity acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, asset sales, Section 338(h)(10) acquisitions, strategic alliances, divestitures and business combinations.
SSE&C attorneys provide counseling to our clients ranging from managing due diligence to drafting and negotiating the detailed transaction documents. Critical to the economic benefits afforded to our clients is the coordination among the business and tax practice areas, thereby structuring transactions in a tax-efficient manner.
Utilizing their abilities and extensive experience in the organization, purchase, sale and merger of businesses, the attorneys at SSE&C safeguard the interests of our clients by:
- Developing shareholders’, operating or partnership agreements that address critical issues, such as the death, disability or departure of owners, and fashioning the mechanics to address transfers of ownership interests
- Crafting alternative models for resolution of conflicts among shareholders and members of limited liability companies
- Selecting the most appropriate method to determine the value of the business in connection with transfer of ownership interests, and the manner, including leveraged buyouts, in which to fund and ensure that the transferring owner achieves the maximum economic benefit, without adversely impacting the company and remaining owners
