Business Formation and Organization
Mergers, Acquisition and Sale
Buying a Business
We help buyers of all levels of sophistication as they navigate the process of purchasing an existing business. We help behind the scenes with preliminary negotiations, LOIs, and continue assisting through the due diligence process and drafting purchase documents, all the way through closing. We help you work with your financing sources to get the deal done. With our help, at the end of the acquisition process, you’ll understand the business you’ve purchased inside and out. Buying a business can be overwhelming; we are there to help every step of the way.
Selling a Business
We help existing companies as they sell their businesses. From the earliest negotiations of the offer, the LOI, and due diligence responses, we help safeguard the Company in the purchase process. Whether you’ve found a buyer through a broker or you’re selling to a family member or long-term employee, it’s essential the sale be well-documented and your rights be protected. Most business disputes can be avoided through open dialogue and careful document drafting during the sale process. We’ll guide you through the entire process and, with our help, you will be free from surprises and trailing liabilities.
