Mergers and Acquisitions

Represented the buyer with the negotiations and documentation relating to the acquisition of a privately held trucking company.  The buyer, also a privately held family owned business, acquired its counterpart in a consolidating acquisition.  DeAngelis Legal worked with the buyer and seller’s legal and accounting teams to re-structure the transaction from a stock sale to an asset sale to minimize buyer’s exposure to liabilities incurred prior to closing and satisfy seller’s cash flow objectives.  DeAngelis Legal also successfully negotiated the transaction documents and successfully closed the transaction at year end.  After the closing, the buyer’s CFO wrote to say “Thanks Quinn for your hands-on leadership in simplifying what were potentially difficult negotiations. I could handle the CPA and banking hurdles and relationships, but not the attorney and legal details. You the man!”
