Buying or Selling a Business is a process that can proceed painlessly if you have an experienced lawyer. There are so many things to consider. Should you buy or sell assets or shares? What is the difference and what are the tax consequences? Are there agreements or leases that affect your business? What about other creditors or other liabilities? How do I arrange financing. The list of questions is long and it depends on the type of business and your specific business plan and needs. There is no such thing as a "one size fits all solution". That is why you need an experienced lawyer who can tailor the transaction to fit your needs.
As soon as you are thinking about buying or selling a business you need to be talking to an Experienced Lawyer. Consulting a lawyer after you have signed the contract is often too late and may cost you tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
