Business Sales and Purchases

Buyers and sellers should retain legal counsel to structure a purchase or sale that is in their best interests. We begin the process by discussing objectives.  Later, we advise clients on whether to structure the sale as a stock purchase or asset purchase. With a stock purchase, no no entity creation is required by the buyer.  Asset purchases, though, usually require the buyer to set up a new entity. We can provide the buy-sell agreements and the shareholder agreements, which may include terms for selling stock, voting trust provisions, and valuation provisions for death, disability, and voluntary or involuntary retirement. We advise the parties on the tax implications of entity choice, the cost of setup and the flexibility of each entity.

Our experienced business lawyers offer counsel regarding all aspects of business purchases and sales.  If applicable to the specific transaction, these can include:

If desired, we can also help buyers understand the long-term benefits and consequences of each option.
