Buyer Due Diligence and Risk Mitigation in Government Contractor M&A Transactions: How In-House Counsel Can Make or Break a Transaction Right Out of the Box
Members of Holland & Knight's Government Contracts and Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Groups, along with attorneys throughout the firm, collaborated on an Association of Corporate Counsel InfoPAK titled "Buyer Due Diligence and Risk Mitigation in Government Contractor M&A Transactions: How In-House Counsel Can Make or Break a Transaction Right Out of the Box.
In recent years, mergers and acquisitions have become increasingly important to the growth strategies of government contractors because unpredictable government funding levels have made organic growth less reliable. This InfoPAK serves as a guide for conducting and overseeing the due diligence process in M&A transactions within the government contracting sector. It provides a complete overview of the due diligence process, beginning with a discussion of developing an appropriate diligence plan and team, and then explaining how to conduct diligence in key areas and how to effectively use the information acquired. The InfoPAK discusses risks specific to government contracting, such as DCAA audits and conflicts of interests, and also covers general areas of concern during due diligence, such as tax issues, ethics and compliance, intellectual property rights, employment and labor practices, risks arising from foreign operations, litigation liabilities, environmental regulatory risks, and risks related to corporate and organizational structure.
