Attorneys for Buying or Selling a Business

Businesses are bought and sold for many reasons. Merger, retirement, moving, children, health, new ideas….the reasons are as diverse as the types of businesses themselves.

Whether you are buying or selling a business one thing is universal: you want to limit your liability. If you are buying the business you want to make sure you are not on the hook for those things that came before you. If you are selling the business, you want to make sure you are not on the hook for things that happen after you are gone.

In either case, you will want the guidance and assistance of an experienced business attorney to help you get through the business succession process.
