In today’s business world, mergers and acquisitions are common-place. But, there is more to the agreement than closing the deal. Companies must also merge the policies, benefits and personnel of two or more companies into a new one.
We take a collaborative approach when assisting our clients with this process, drawing on the experience of our Business and Labor & Employment Teams (and outside benefits and change management experts when needed) to help ensure the business goals of the merger or acquisition are not hindered by “culture” issues or legal landmines under the laws enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, the Internal Revenue Service or any other government agency.
