Selling a Business
If you are considering selling your business in order to retire, or for financial or other reasons, you need a business lawyer who can negotiate and close a fair contract with speed and precision. Our firm has extensive experience in the complexities of buying and selling a business. We can help you capture the true value of your business while protecting you against liability.
Buying a Business
Buyers need an experienced attorney who can perform due diligence before making a purchase. As a buyer you need to know the full scope of assets that are being purchased, as well as the amount of debt and other contractual obligations the company may have. In addition to due diligence performance, we will also negotiate a contractual agreement that will clearly articulate your rights and obligations.
