Corporate Restructuring and Acquisitions

For companies in acquisition mode, Montgomery McCracken’s employee benefits attorneys provide invaluable assistance in their due diligence investigation of the acquired companies’ employee benefits plans, including ascertaining whether any unfunded liabilities exist or whether retirees have been promised lifetime medical benefits. Where such exigencies are uncovered, our employee benefits attorneys work closely with their clients to obtain appropriate adjustments to purchase prices and also to terminate the acquired companies’ benefit plans or transition them into those of the larger entity. Of particular note, our employee benefits attorneys recently assisted an internationally publicly traded company in connection with an impending tender offer that resulted in the company ceasing to be publicly traded. We handled the complex issues involving the tendering of company stock held under a 401(k) plan, employee communications, and the preparation of various regulatory filings. With Montgomery McCracken’s employee benefits attorneys at the table, there are no employee benefits surprises when the deal is done.
