Mahoney and Associates Services

In today's world of acquisitions, mergers and divestitures, complex financial and legal arrangements can shift hundreds of thousands (or millions) of dollars in liabilities to either side of the ledger!

Because M&A has represented clients in both the acquiring and divesting modes, we've developed significant expertise in this area. Consistency and flexibility: both are critical to achieving success in mergers and acquisitions. Compliance requirements, benefits and compensation agreements - all need to be meticulously reviewed.

M&A provides…

  • Risk management assessment
  • Sarbanes-Oxley (procedures, controls, etc.) analysis
  • Non-discrimination testing
  • Data mapping and retention analysis
  • Documentation and notice compliance review
  • Filings audits (such as Form 5500)
  • Hidden “trigger events” (change of control provisions, impact on vesting of non-qualified plans, severance plan audits, etc.)
  • Employee status confirmation - (FMLA, USERRA, COBRA)
  • Corporate tax and accounting procedures reviews relative to all benefit plans
  • Review/analysis of all fiduciary controls

Our experts are prepared to assist in...

  • Cost/benefit analyses for all health and welfare programs
  • Conducting demographic analysis of combined employee population
  • Bringing uniformity to the new benefit offerings and practices
  • Reducing or eliminating liabilities attributable to the acquisition
  • Assuring new programs are supportive of the new corporate culture, strategy and mission
  • Assisting with employee communications & the new HR branding
  • Identifying administrative efficiencies
  • Providing compliance advisory services to identify hidden liabilities

Our on-staff legal and accounting professionals can supplement your team to assure that no unnecessary dollars are left on the table. Unknown liabilities can negate the profit in a transaction, or may even terminate an otherwise beneficial arrangement. M&A is committed to assisting your staff to avoid these potentially costly oversights.

Blending corporate cultures during and after acquisitions can be problematic. Our expertise in this unique area can be a valuable resource to you and your other professional team members.
