Considerations in Business Purchases and Sales
From the initial stage of your business aquisition or sale to the final closing, there are many aspects of the transaction to consider in order to protect your financial interests. These include:
- Proper valuation of the business and its inventory
- Real estate and inventory liens
- Structuring the sale as an asset purchase or stock purchase
- Organize and conduct due diligence
- Franchise and non-compete agreements in place
- Financial statements and other important documents
- Proper drafting of the asset purchase agreement or stock purchase agreement, and other contracts and documents needed for the transaction
Our lawyers at Haley Palmersheim, S.C., are able to help you answer these questions and understand the other issues that may arise during your transaction. We work closely with CPAs in business valuation to ensure that our clients' financial concerns are met.
If you are thinking about buying or selling your business, you should not simply rely on a broker to facilitate the purchase. Only an experienced lawyer can anticipate and resolve all of the various issues that may arise in the transaction.
