M & A Lawyers FAQs

What is an M&A Lawyer?

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) or Corporate Law are transactions or deals that involve businesses such as merging, demerging (i.e. separating), buying and selling of companies and their assets. The M&A lawyer is the primary point of contact for the rest of the deal team (including accountants, corporate finance and other professionals) and has principal responsibility for shepherding the transaction to closing by managing the timetable, the transaction documentation and negotiations.

How much Mergers and Acquisition work does Obelisk do?

M&A work tends to require surges in a team’s capacity to manage a transaction to a deadline. Obelisk Support is often called on to support with additional paralegal or lawyer support to help a client get the deal done in a timely manager.

Do you manage post-acquisition legal work?

Yes! Obelisk Support has a wide range of experience in helping businesses go through their post-M&A integration process.

How do I hire a flexible M&A Lawyer?

Just fill in our client enquiry form and tell us more about the types of skills you are looking for as well as the commitment required from the lawyer or paralegal. We’ll do the rest!

Do Obelisk Support M&A lawyers only work from home?

No! Whilst many of our M&A lawyers do work remotely, many are also available to work in your offices in a hybrid working arrangement as required.
