Buying and Selling a Business

Businesses can go through significant changes over the years. In some cases, this can include being bought or sold. There are many reasons why someone might choose to buy or sell a business, although both can come with many complicated challenges. A change in ownership has many difficulties, including various legal matters and obstacles. Because of this, if you’re planning to buy or sell an existing business, you need to do so with the right legal guidance. 

At Tressler & Associates, we understand the complexities that can occur when buying or selling a business. To ensure that this transition is completed as smoothly as possible, our entrepreneurial law attorney can help you through this process. We can oversee this process and assist with all legal matters of a business sale.

Buying a Business

Starting a new business from scratch is an incredibly large amount of work, and is sometimes not necessary. For some, buying an existing business is a much better decision. However, while buying a business means that much of the work to get it started has already been completed, it doesn’t mean this transition will be easy.

Buying a business is not a decision to take likely, and you want to ensure that doing so is in your best interest. If you aren’t careful, you could end up making a costly mistake. Having an entrepreneurial law attorney on your side can help ensure that everything is handled correctly while you work to buy an existing business.

Tressler & Associates can help you take on this exciting opportunity by assisting with the following and more:

  • Researching and doing due diligence to uncover any potential risks. 
  • Assisting with negotiations.
  • Drafting and reviewing contracts and agreements.

Buying a new business means not only taking on its assets, but also its liabilities. There are many legal considerations to make when looking to buy a new business. You want to know everything you can about the business prior to purchasing it and have a plan in place for the transition in ownership. With Tressler & Associates, we can help you get the most out of buying an existing business while preventing the risks that can occur.

Selling a Business

While you’ve worked hard to make your business successful, you may feel like it’s time for you to leave the company. There are many reasons for business owners to want to sell their businesses to someone else. If you think this is the best decision for yourself and your business, you want to do everything you can to ensure it’s done correctly.

A few ways that an entrepreneurial law attorney can assist with the sale of your business include:

  • Determining the value of your business’s assets
  • Negotiating for the best deal.
  • Drafting and reviewing contracts and agreements.

When you’re preparing to sell the business you’ve helped create or run, you can’t be too careful. There are many potential legal problems that you may face as the seller. You’ve put a great deal of investment into your business and have employees, equipment, and other valuable assets to look out for.

Have an Entrepreneurial Law Attorney Assist with Your Business Sale

Buying and selling a business has many benefits for both parties, but this can be a complicated process. Passing ownership of an existing business from the seller to the buyer has many legal complexities that need to be handled carefully. Additionally, buying and selling a business requires various legal documents for both parties. With an important sale on the line, you need an experienced entrepreneurial law attorney who can assist with the business sale.

At Tressler & Associates, we know the work that goes into buying and selling a business. Whether you’re the buyer or seller, we can help you throughout this process and provide the guidance you need. Contact our entrepreneurial law attorney today.
