Business Formations, Acquisitions, and Mergers

Business formations, acquisitions, and mergers can create new markets and opportunities—and new regulatory and legal challenges. Skelton Taintor & Abbott can steer you through them all.

Our corporate clients benefit from our 160 years of experience counseling companies through changes of leadership and times of expansion, reorganization and growth. We have extensive experience designing even the most complicated mergers and acquisitions, handling spin-offs, and structuring business ownership and succession plans.

Our deep roots in one of Maine’s largest urban areas have given us particularly keen insight into the challenges faced by independent and family-run businesses and we have developed specialized strategies for surmounting them. And, because we have built our nationally recognized legal practice in a smaller community, we can offer premium legal services at a more competitive price.

The top-rated business and finance lawyers on the ST&A business acquisitions teams represent buyers and sellers from the letter of intent to closing. Our team handles many due diligence reviews, and:

  • advocates for clients in complex financial negotiations,
  • drafts purchase and sale contracts and related agreements, and
  • facilitates smooth, well scheduled closings.

The sooner we sit down at the table, the more successful your business merger and acquisition will be. If your business is considering a merger or acquisition, call 207.784.3200 to schedule a consultation today.
