Business Purchase & Sale Attorneys

If you are buying or selling a business, turn the project over to the purchase and sale attorneys at the Law Offices of Alvin H. Lee. The transfer of a business to a new owner requires due diligence on the part of the buyer to avoid later surprises. 

There are multiple components to contemplating the buying or selling of a business, including completing due diligence, identifying all legal issues related to the contemplated sale, and understanding the rights and obligations following the sale of a business.

Common items that should be considered in a purchase agreement include:

  • Full legal names of the buyer, seller and business.
  • Whether the purchase is for the company or the assets of the business.
  • Obtaining all financial information, including ledger books, accounting, and tax returns.
  • The purchase price of the sale.
  • Payment terms for the purchase price.
  • A list of the equipment, inventory, or assets included in the purchase price.
  • Intellectual property rights and use licensing.
  • List of all contingencies.
  • Allocations of the purchase price.
  • What will happen to any employees.
  • When the closing date will be.
  • What happens between execution of the agreement and the closing date.
  • Tax obligations and/or consequences for each party.

The above list is not comprehensive or exhaustive. Each sale of a business is different and may involve additional considerations unique to that particular sale. Identifying issues and anticipating potential contingencies are critical to a successful buy or sale of a business.
