Business Mergers and Acquisitions
If you seek to combine two or more business entities, you need an experienced lawyer with a deep understanding of the legal merger and acquisition process. Since there are multiple ways to integrate businesses, seeking the advice of an attorney will make sure that your interests are protected, and the new business entity will best suit your needs.
You must seek the advice of an attorney due to the far-reaching legal and tax implications of a merger or acquisition. Specific rules govern the process, and the final business entity must resolve ownership, control, management, decision-making, liability, and taxation questions. Although these can be complex and wide-reaching concerns, Rasmussen Law can bring clarity to the process and help your Minnesota business succeed.
Advice for All Business Entities
Minimizing the tax implications and limiting liability for owners or shareholders is imperative during the merger or acquisition process. The merger, acquisition and type of ongoing business entity must be structured in a way that best protects your interest and assets.

- Closely held businesses
- S Corporations
- Limited liability companies
