Checklist From The Trenches: Top 5 Labor & Employment Considerations In M&A Transactions

By Curtis D. Greenwood, Co-Author

A thorough investigation, review, and understanding of a target company’s employment policies and practices is critical due diligence for both buyers and sellers in an M&A transaction. These employment considerations often create financial efficiencies and synergies for the transaction, can help shape the strategy for the deal, including negotiations of the purchase price, and can greatly impact the post-closing transition on both sides of the transaction.

In this year’s MountainWest Capital Network’s (MWCN) Deal Flow Report published on May 18, 2023, attorneys Camila Moreno and Curtis Greenwood provide five labor and employment considerations for employers to reference in M&A transactions, whether as the buyer or seller in the article titled, “Checklist From The Trenches: Top 5 Labor & Employment Considerations In M&A Transactions.”
