Mergers & Acquisitions

Buying and selling companies, cross-border and domestic

NEXT represents acquirers and sellers in the sale of small to middle-market businesses.  For sellers, we work to make the process understandable and straightforward, while protecting key legal interests and avoiding post-closing liability.  We help buyers understand what they are buying (with a thorough due diligence process), backed up with strong representations and indemnities. Many of our deals have an international component (often a connection with Latin America or Europe), and our experience will help you navigate complex cross-border issues.

We advise on:

  • Due diligence, data room management, and drafting disclosure schedules
  • Drafting and negotiating purchase and sale agreements
  • The use of seller financing, such as notes, seller equity, and earn-outs
  • Representation on purchaser bank financing
  • Boards of directors’ fiduciary duties
  • Post-closing rights, obligations and integration issues
