A merger is a transaction between two or more companies (usually corporations, but it can be LLCs or even partnerships) which join together and form a single entity.You will most commonly find "mergers" in "mergers and acquisition" law where corporations are growing. Corporations will combine in order to consolidate their departments, expand into new industries or sectors, eliminate competition, acquire new assets, or any number of other business objectives.At its core mergers are simply negotiations leading to contracts, but with large deals with publicly traded companies you need to be aware of SEC and other regulations (in addition to industry specific regulations).
