Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions refers to the business strategy of either combining, buying, or selling entities in order to benefit a company within a certain industry.


A Memorandum documents the terms of an agreement in order to protect the parties entering into a transaction and forming a contract.

Non-Compete Agreement

A Non-Compete Agreement restrains one party from directly competing with another party. Often, Non-Compete Agreements involve a company considering the possibility that a recently terminated employee may use their knowledge of the previous employer to his or her competitive advantage.

Confidentiality Agreements

A Confidentiality Agreement is a binding contract between two parties that outlines the information or knowledge that, once disclosed to the contracting party, should be kept private from a third party.

Due Diligence

Due Diligence involves the process of evaluating the assets of a party, whether it be in the case of a potential acquisition or a voluntary investigation occurring before the signing of a general business contract. In an area where careful and thorough work is critical to success, Watson Legal Group has extensive experience with the elements of conducting a Due Diligence request.

Auction Sales / Distress Sales

Watson Legal Group has handled cases involving Auction Sales and Distress Sales whereby a business entity or property is offered up for bid and sold to the highest bidder.
