Todd Overman's practice focuses primarily on advising clients doing business with the Federal Government. In this regard, his practice includes a combination of litigation, mergers and acquistions of government contractor entities, and regulatory advice, with a particular emphasis on small business issues.
Mergers / acquisitions lawyers help businesses buy other companies, or merge with them to become a single company. For example, America Online and Time Warner merged in 2000 to form AOL Time Warner. There are many reasons companies merge–for example, corporate strategy and finance, economies of scale, increased revenue or market share, and cross-selling opportunities. Mergers and acquisitions attorneys understand business law, are often trained negotiators, and will be able to draft detailed agreements describing the new relationship.
