Our Strategic Corporate Planning Group takes a strategic approach to labor and employment matters for clients who are buying or selling a business, helping them maximize opportunity and avoid potentially devastating results. If key issues are addressed early in the process and the proper groundwork put in place, a new owner will be well-positioned to execute the terms and conditions of employment and practices that complement its business strategy, augmenting the value of a deal. We are recognized leaders in advising privately and publicly held companies and investors throughout the course of a transaction in important – and often-neglected – areas that are critical to successful corporate mergers and acquisitions.
We collaborate with accounting firms, financial advisory firms, management consultants and corporate law practices to advise clients on the panoply of labor and employment issues that arise in the context of corporate transactions, including labor-management relations, workplace issues, employee benefits, executive compensation and immigration matters. We help clients minimize risk and maximize the value and success of corporate transactions by navigating buyers and sellers through the labor and employment issues that arise in the course of a transaction, advising target companies after completion of a sale, and helping buyers to identify and implement the post-acquisition employment terms, conditions and practices that will enable them to maximize value and achieve their strategic objectives.
