Corporate transactions are a frequent feature of a lawyer’s life and can be one of the most challenging. In addition to dealing with the specific features of the acquisition (such as its structure and pricing) the lawyers investigate every aspect of the target’s activities, negotiate appropriate protections for each party and put in place transitional arrangements to allow a smooth change of ownership. As an indispensable aspect of most businesses, IT is an integral part of this process.
