Businesses Buying & Selling Services


We offer multiple specialized services for business owners:

  • Negotiation of the Preliminary Terms: The initial negotiation of the purchase terms before contracts are prepared, is often the most important period of time when selling a business. We can assist in maximizing the value for the sale during these negotiations and also work to prepare quality documentation to memorialize the agreed upon initial terms.
  • Ownership Equity Sales: If you are preparing for a stock sale, we can help with the structure and offerings for potential investors who want to buy-in. We will then work to properly reorganize the business to reflect and plan for the new owners.
  • Business Asset Sales: Talk to us if you are planning to sell your business’s assets to a buyer. Often, these services are designed with the longer goal of dissolving the business entity after the sale is complete.
