Contracts and Selling and Buying Businesses

Typically, buying and selling a business happens through an asset sale or a stock sale. Our attorney helps our clients anticipate and solve the various issues and considerations that arise in these types of transactions. If we represent the seller, we look to make sure that the seller is paid for the assets or stock and does not have liability for the buyer's activities once the business is sold. If we represent the buyer, we look to make sure that the buyer does not take on liabilities that the seller created prior to the sale.

Our attorney also assists clients with drafting, negotiating, or reviewing a wide variety of contracts, including:
