Mergers And Acquisitions Law Lawyers In Georgetown Connecticut

Georgetown is a village and census-designated place in Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States. It is located at the point where the towns of Wilton, Redding, and Weston meet. The central portion of the village is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as a historic district, the Georgetown Historic District. While the village of Georgetown in 1986 extended into four towns (Wilton, Redding, Ridgefield, and Weston), the district includes portions of just two: Redding and Wilton. The village and its surrounding area was also defined as a census-designated place (CDP) in the 2000 U.S. Census. At that time, the population of the CDP was 1,650. Georgetown is located at the southwest corner of the town of Redding, the northwest corner of the town of Weston, and the northeast corner of the town of Wilton. Georgetown residents officially live in and pay local taxes to one of these three towns, but typically identify themselves as living in Georgetown. Georgetown has its own fire district, which also serves the surrounding rural areas not traditionally included in Georgetown, and its own ZIP code (06829).

What is mergers and acquisitions law?

In the law of corporations, a merger is effected when one or more corporations becomes a part of, or merges, with another corporation so that one ceases to exist and the other continues to exist. In a merger, the company that continues to exist retains its name and identity and acquires the assets, liabilities, franchises, and powers of the corporation that ceases to exist. Attorneys who practice in mergers and acquisitions (sometimes called M & A) represent corporations and other business entities in strategizing, negotiating, and carrying out transactions in which two or more companies or corporations combine into a single new entity, a merger, or where one business purchases and absorbs the assets of another, an acquisition.
