Buying and Selling Businesses

I frequently assist clients in purchasing and selling businesses.  It is important to have an experienced attorney involved as early as possible in this process.  Whether my client is buying or selling a business, I can draft all necessary documents, including the purchase/sale agreement, non-competition agreements, consulting agreements, confidentiality agreements, and many others.  Well crafted documents will pay dividends during the closing process and after closing if a dispute arises.   If you are selling a business, you may need advice on the tax implications of the sale or you may need investment advice    My firm can guide business owners in the multi-stage process of buying or selling a business including:

  • Advising on the structure of the transaction.
  • Negotiation of terms and drafting of the deal memorandum
  • Advising buyers on conducting legal due diligence
  • Advising sellers on legal strategies to address issues raised during the due diligence process.
  • Drafting, reviewing and negotiating the extensive documentation involved in a business transaction.
