Mergers and acquisitions will impact your workforce. This impact will be felt on your workforce composition, compensation packages, employment contracts, and your corporation’s pension and benefits obligations.
Legislative provisions and common or civil law requirements create obligations and potential liabilities which must be taken into consideration in all forms of commercial transaction, including M&A and insolvency-related transactions.
We work cross-functionally with the firm’s M&A, insolvency and commercial lawyers on solutions that create lasting value. We are involved in strategic planning, due diligence, negotiation of transaction agreements, and drafting employment contracts and other employment-related agreements. We identify potential risks and design transition strategies to contain those risks. If terminations are unavoidable, we’ll structure layoffs or redundancies to align with your goals and minimize liability.
We advise local, national and multinational companies in every type of commercial transaction.
