We assist clients both in the purchase and sale of businesses. In doing so, we help our clients determine the most advantageous tax and legal structure for their purchase or sale, including the decision whether to purchase or sell the assets of the business or the ownership interests in the entity that operates the business. We assist our clients in the negotiation process. We advise purchasers of business during the investigatory stage of the purchase and assist them in developing the representations and warranties to require from their seller. We assist in structuring payment terms and in determining and documenting the arrangements needed to secure payment of the deferred portion of the purchase price.
