Selling Or Buying A Business

The sale or purchase of a business is a tremendous opportunity to generate substantial returns on investment. But, there are often many ways that a deal can be derailed. It is essential that you are working with counsel that can help you set up the deal and identify any potential issues in advance so they can be rectified.

From sales of assets and sales of stock to all other aspects of a sale, our firm can help guide the process. More than just guidance, we can also provide the advocacy our clients need if any issues arise during the transaction.

Is A Dispute Impacting Your Business Sale Or Purchase?

The reality is that even with the best guidance, some disputes are unavoidable in the purchase or sale of a business. The other party may be failing to meet certain obligations. You may have learned about an issue that damages the value of the deal for you. No matter whether you are seeking to enforce a contract or find a solution to a problem, we can help you. Our skill as litigators allows us to act as highly effective advocates in court if the matter cannot be resolved through negotiation.

We can help resolve a wide range of issues that could impact your transaction or the business at a later point, including:

  • Fraud
  • Misrepresentation of actual assets
  • Misrepresentation of accounting books
  • Noncompetition clause enforcement
  • Trade secrets
