Mergers and Acquisitions

The Drager Group’s professionals have extensive experience in representing and supporting buyers and sellers of businesses in many industries. We have significant hands-on experience in supporting acquisitions and divestitures. We understand the issues that arise and suggest creative solutions that bridge differences between the parties. We facilitate solutions to those differences, rather than having both parties become entrenched in their positions. We guide the process and work with experienced practitioners in all the areas necessary to handle an acquisition - legal, financial, marketing & PR, labor, litigation, compliance and others. We provide Executive Transition services to support to ensure the effective leadership and operational transition. We pride ourselves in working toward closing deals, and in working with clients as part of the integration team to help them meet their goals in the process.

Reduce the cost, pain & risk - ensure success!

Every M&A deal is different, but there are common themes that run throughout. Do everything well, and you can greatly enhance your success. Do it poorly and you can squirrel the deal.
