Protecting Your Interests

We help clients anticipate all the relevant issues in a buyout or sale transaction. What is the market value of the business? What is the reasonable value of the existing member’s shares? Who chooses the appraiser? What is the venue for settling disputes? Are you buying only the assets of the entity or assuming undue risk by acquiring the liabilities and stock as well? What is the exit strategy? What are the tax consequences of a merger, acquisition or divestment?

You want to be sure, to the extent possible, that there are no loose ends that will derail the deal or come back to haunt you. We perform due diligence for buyers and counsel sellers on disclosures and representations and review the transactional documents for any ambiguities or red flags.

Clients have direct access to a senior lawyer who can structure their business transactions in the most favorable terms. Call us at 952-219-7897 or contact us online for a free initial discussion.
