M & A and Private Equity

The Gohari Legal Group represents domestic and international companies, founders, management groups and private equity firms in sophisticated mergers, stock or asset sales, leveraged buyouts, spinouts, and divestitures, across a broad range of industries.

We maintain a close working relationship with a network of specialist attorneys which we call upon as needed to assemble a team customized for any particular transaction.

Our focus mirrors the goals of our clients, to provide advice, counsel and unrelenting service in order for our clients to quickly and efficiently proceed to closing.

The Gohari Legal Group has extensive experience closing all types of merger and acquisition transactions on behalf of our clients, including asset acquisitions or dispositions, mergers, stock purchases and sales, corporate restructurings, spin-offs and other creatively-structured business transactions.

We provide experienced, creative legal advice to assist our clients in achieving their business and legal objectives. Instead of creating unnecessary obstacles to the closing of a transaction, we strive to facilitate the closing of transactions by providing practical, informed legal advice with our client’s business and legal goals at the forefront.

On many occasions, merger and acquisition transactions raise complex tax structuring considerations. In those instances, The Gohari Legal Group will coordinate with the appropriate outside counsel to ensure that our clients reap the benefit of the most tax-efficient transaction structure.

Following the closing of a merger and acquisition transaction, there may be a transition period in which the purchaser and the seller continue to have obligations to each other with respect to the transaction. This time period can be fraught with peril, but The Gohari Legal Group has the legal acumen to ensure that our clients overcome and navigate the potential legal risks and pitfalls of such transition periods. We believe that our work is not complete at closing and strive to ensure that our firm’s clients fulfill their legal obligations, such as earn-outs, employment agreements and post-closing restrictive covenants.

By their nature, merger and acquisition transactions can be challenging and uncertain for any client, but The Gohari Legal Group strives to overcome the challenges and eliminate the uncertainty with respect to merger and acquisition transactions with the singular focus of achieving our client’s business and legal goals in the most efficient manner possible.

Risk Management

In today’s litigation market, plaintiff attorneys are always looking for the next big thing. These cases involve thousands of people and damage claims in the billions of dollars. Often, the waters are tested with a single case or two, but the real risks to the company lie not in these few cases, but rather in the others looming in the background if these “test” cases are successful. These cases can develop into a “bet the company” scenario. Our job is to help prevent this from happening. The risks may include a threat to a brand or national image and an economic risk far beyond the value of the individual case.

The Gohari Legal Group has the ability and experience to identify these types of cases early in the litigation process and in developing a strategy that resolves the immediate problem created by the case. We thrive on delivering a plan for dealing with the implicit/potential future implications. Managing risk is at the core of our past work. Many lawyers can litigate, few can recognize the broader problems of a case, and fewer still can maintain the dual focus to eliminate the immediate problem and simultaneously manage the present and future risks to the company. From media relations to negotiations, we consider all options in developing the proper strategy that protects you now and in the future.
