Names and Trademarks After a Business Acquisition or Merger
Brand name recognition is important. Sometimes, a trademark can be among the company’s most valuable assets. When two companies merge, what happens to the trademarks? Attorneys at Neale & Newman, L.L.P. can effectively manage all issues related to intellectual property law, including trademark and copyright issues.
Integrating Pre-Existing Service Contracts Into A New Business
Acquisitions and mergers do not occur in a market vacuum. The connections, obligations, and attachments of both companies still exist after the merger. But service contracts need to be changed in order to mesh with the structure of the business entity that will form after the merger or acquisition is complete. This can be an arduous, document-intensive process. At Neale & Newman, L.L.P., we have the capacity and technology to handle all aspects — while constantly keeping our client’s objectives foremost in mind.
