I can assist with the sale, purchase or merger of a business, preparing all documents and counseling you along the way. Many persons do not utilize an attorney at the early stages and end up in litigation because either what they bought was not what they understood or what they sold was not to a qualified buyer. The structure of the buy or sale is absolutely critical from a taxation and operating point of view. Many of the arrangements involve some sort of financing that I can discuss with the client in terms of what is typical and what the structure of the sale or purchase should be.
Mergers can be done between various corporations: LLC’s, LLC’s and C Corporations, S Corporations and LLC’s, C Corporations and can be done in a variety of forms: triangular, direct, subsidiary and can fit the needs of the parties. These are more complex and involve issues of taxation and various state laws depending on where the corporations are.
