Management and Leveraged Buyouts
Management groups need dedicated counsel when dealing with management and leveraged buyouts (MBOs/LBOs) to ensure that their objectives are being met. That's where Maslon attorneys can help.
An MBO/LBO typically involves three groups, each with distinct business and legal interests: 1) the company being acquired, 2) the MBO/LBO fund or other institution financing the acquisition, and 3) management. While the company and the financier usually have their own legal representation, management often lacks adequate legal counsel or relies upon conflicted advice.
We bring in a lean, multidisciplinary and responsive team of lawyers skilled in transactions, tax, benefits, finance and securities law where needed, to help you achieve your goals in a cost-effective manner. For MBOs, we provide practical corporate and tax advice to properly structure senior and junior debt levels, senior equity, common stock, warrants, and options.
You'll work closely with an attentive team of deeply experienced attorneys skilled in:
- Corporate M&A law, to help you negotiate and navigate the fundamental structural aspects of a management or leveraged buyout
- Financial services law, to work with the financier and its counsel in negotiating and structuring the debt
- Benefits, tax and employment law
