Selling A Business
How Do I Maximize The Upside And Protect Myself From Harm?
Selling a business is a huge undertaking. It may represent the culmination of many years of hard work, sacrifice and investment. As a seller, you want to make sure you get the most out of the deal, financially or otherwise.
You also want to prevent any unforeseeable problems down the line, particularly if you are providing owner financing. So how exactly do you do that? You do your own homework, listen to your instincts and get proper guidance.
Making The Complexity Manageable
The business lawyers at Cagle Carpenter Hazlewood, based in Austin, Texas, are aware of the complexity that often accompanies working with other businesses to combine or transfer assets in a manner that benefits both companies. Large-scale transactions and transfers of ownership typically involve very large sums of money, and without skilled representation capable of effectively handling the matter, you may be exposed to dangerous liabilities or not have your interests fully protected. We can help you understand:
- How to valuate the business
- How to develop an asset purchase agreement with provisions about “as is/where is”
- How to obtain collateral so you don’t get caught with just a promissory note
- What kinds of contracts you will need
- How best to handle the real estate component of the deal
- What industry-specific matters, such as regulatory issues, must be considered
Our firm will work diligently to protect your company’s interests before, during and after the sale, from ideation and negotiation to closing and beyond.
