MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS

Merger, acquisition, divestiture, and partnering opportunities are significant events throughout the life cycle of any company and for its owners or prospective owners. The financial, organizational, managerial, and strategic problems which they create are different from the usual operating problems faced by management. Solutions to these new problems can be very complex.

We have extensive experience in assisting clients in all aspects of the merger and acquisition process. DPP is actively involved in every facet of an M&A transaction and utilizes a hands-on approach. Our thorough diligence at the front-end of a transaction, relationships with potential M&A partners and comprehensive management of the closing process both provide greater certainty of completion and fewer last-minute surprises.
