Mergers and Acquisitions
Our commercial law group can help you and your business with buying and selling. We can guide you through a share transaction or an asset purchase or sale, a transaction involving the division or spin off a part of a business. If you are buying, we can help you analyze the target and develop the strategy. If you are selling, we can help you design the package of what is to be sold. In consultation with your accountants we will make sure that the tax consequences of the structure of the deal are understood and most favourable.
Working alongside you, we can assist in negotiations, drafting the letter of intent, preparing the purchase agreement, delineating and conducting the "due diligence" review, negotiating and preparing non-competition, confidentiality and indemnity agreements and attending at closing. The experience of the Waterous commercial law group extends to the purchase and sale of a wide variety of manufacturing, investment and service enterprises, often including the transfer of special assets such as intellectual property rights, joint venture interests, marketing board quotas, real estate or other significant investments. Waterous can also help assist your business with:

- Share Purchase/Sale Transactions
- Ancillary Non-Competition Agreements
