Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) is a corporate finance term describing the consolidation of companies or assets. Assets can be intangible, such as intellectual property, or tangible as in real estate. An acquisition involves the purchase of an entire firm (or business unit), where the entity maintains its structure, but now has a parent company; this parent company would have ownership of stock, equity interests or assets. A merger is the combining of two firms, which form a new legal entity. Mergers or acquisitions can allow businesses to grow, downsize, or change the nature of their business or competitive position. Brand recognition, trademarks, patents, and trade secrets are all important aspects of a mergers and acquisitions business transaction.

Mergers and acquisitions can require complex business contracts, and outside experts are often called upon to assist with consulting, risk management, business valuation, due diligence, and/or negotiation. Businesses involved in major transactions may face a shareholder dispute or other litigation trying to either obstruct or enforce a transaction. Litigation support services by a mergers and acquisitions expert could include corporate valuation, financial consulting, economic damages, expert report, expert opinion, and/or expert witness testimony. In addition, law firms may request a forensic accounting expert or valuation analyst for pre-litigation consultant work.
