At Freeman, Dunn, Lucy & Coates, PC, we provide comprehensive representation to individuals and businesses in the sale or purchase of a business.

Our firm has years of experience in business matters, with the additional insight of being a business ourselves. Whether this is your first foray into business or you are a seasoned business professional, we can provide you with the representation you need in all aspects of the sale or purchase. We also provide business formation services to our business clients, in the event you need to reorganize a business after you have purchased the entity.

Issues Involved In The Sale Or Purchase Of A Business

There are many factors that are involved in selling or buying a business. Our firm confidently handles a vast array of matters within the process of completing the transaction, including:

  • Sale and purchase contracts

The Benefits Of Having An Attorney

The process of buying or selling a business, as well as mergers and acquisitions, needs to go smoothly in order to preserve the business’ current revenue or future potential. Our lawyers are thorough in their examination of all of the documents related to the transaction and can ensure you fully understand what you are getting into. Without the guidance of an attorney, you may be taking an unadvisable risk and signing away rights that you did not even know you had. Working closely together, we can take steps to protect you and your business while seeing that the transaction is completed in a way that suits your best interests and those of the business.
