Mergers and Acquisitions - Labor Issues

Mergers and acquisitions often bring unique labor issues to the table. We have experience in mergers, acquisitions and related transactions, including:

  • Strategies for union successorship, union contracts and collective bargaining
  • NLRB issues and avoiding unfair labor practice charges
  • Statutory compliance issues, including federal and state WARN laws
  • EEO risks and strategies in hiring, re-organizing and/or relocating employees
  • Legal, strategic and cultural issues in combining, hiring and/or developing the workforce
  • Retention and severance planning and benefits
  • Reviewing structural documents, such as letters of intent, MOUs and purchase agreements, for labor and employment compliance and strategies
  • Assessing and managing labor and employment issues in bankruptcy-related transactions

We can be a valuable part of your team, as you analyze the best way to proceed with the merger or acquisition.
