Mergers & Acquisitions in Menlo Park
Menlo Park Business Law Attorneys
A merger is the process of joining two companies into one single entity.
Also known as a consolidation, a merger allows for two companies to form
one new enterprise. Neither of the former companies would remain independently
after a merger. In an acquisition, one company acquires the assets of another.
