PURCHASE AND SALE AGREEMENTS

Mergers & Acquisitions

Buying and Selling Businesses
We have over 30 years of experience assisting buyers and sellers with stock purchases and sales, asset purchases and sales, due diligence reviews, collateral and security agreements, promissory notes and guaranties and other business and commercial matters.  Our office will assist you regardless of what role you play in the transaction, and we will advise you on the inherent issues with the sale or the purchase of a business.

The sale or purchase of a business typically involves tangible assets (equipment, receivables) as well as intangible assets such as intellectual property, goodwill, customer lists, websites and domain names. 

 

Careful consideration must be given to the allocation of the purchase price, assets and liabilities included and excluded, accounts receivable and payable, payment of the purchase price and any financing, collateral and security agreements, representations and warranties of buyer and seller and deposits and defaults.  One of the main points of any purchase and sale agreement involves the due diligence process.  Due diligence inquiries will allow the purchaser to ask detailed questions of the seller and obtain records regarding the entity structure, financial history, licensing and legal matters.  The impact of these answers could influence the structure of the purchase and sale agreement, as well as the valuation of the business entity itself.
