Mergers

The process of two or more companies joining together to form a single business entity is referred to as a merger. While the term "acquisition" is often used when a much larger company buys a smaller one, any transaction that combines separate businesses is technically a merger. FindLaw's section on Mergers includes sample questions to ask the intermediary handling your business merger, forms and contracts used for business mergers, real-life examples of asset purchase agreements and stock purchase agreements and more related information.
