M&A counsel is, more or less, at the railhead of negotiations in a business transaction. The lawyer will be expected to have working knowledge of all applicable laws and regulations at the state and federal levels, and ensure that all activities are in compliance. These legal and regulatory issues are not just about the financial transaction itself but about other relevant matters, such as labor and environmental issues.
Legal counsel must coordinate communication with shareholders, ensuring fiduciary responsibilities are being met and that minority shareholders' rights are protected. Contracts and other internal documents must be reviewed. All of this comes in addition to the need to structure the transaction itself in a way most favorable for tax purposes.
In short, good M&A counsel has to have an understanding of law, business, and finance. That understanding is necessarily broad – covering a multitude of topics – and deep – familiar with all the nuanced details that can define the success or failure of the transaction.

The number of issues a mergers and acquisitions lawyer must be prepared to face is as numerous as there are clients and transactions.
But some of the most common circle back to the following:
- Valuation Issues: The companies involved must have accurate values assigned to them. The true value of a company, or part of a company, is often more complex than what's on the books. Everything from long-range potential and the loyalty of the current customer base must be evaluated.
- Regulatory Issues: The more lucrative the merger, the more likely it is that relevant government agencies will take an interest. Regulatory compliance is fundamental to the success of the transaction.
- Financing Issues: Deals have to be closed, and while a law firm might not be directly supplying the funds, they can be networked with sources of financing that may be able to step up in a pinch.
Practical Experience in Business, Law & Finance
To be successful in mergers and acquisitions, an attorney must be well-schooled in the law, to be sure. Our 45-plus years of combined experience at Singh Law Firm have given us plenty of legal knowledge. But in the real world of M&A, legal counsel must go several steps beyond book knowledge of the law and have the same understanding of the interconnected worlds of business and finance. We do. That's why our clients can feel confident putting us on the front lines of their M&A activities.
