Small Business Purchase
We recognise that small businesses have their own set of legal matters that need to be attended to and we provide relevant legal advice. We tailor our small business purchase package to be cost effective, based on what is required in your particular case.
Just few (of many) typical issues could include:
- Does the seller have the right to the business name?
- How much time is left on the lease? Does the landlord agree to the sale?
- Does he or she owe money on the inventory or equipment and could it be repossessed by the suppliers?
It is imperative that in the enthusiasm to acquire a business or start a new business, these types of issues are explored.
Larger Or More Complex Businesses
Medium-size businesses acquisitions will often have quite individual issues that require careful thought by your lawyers and you as the purchaser. There may be complex ownership arrangements, assignments of existing arrangement, intellectual property issues and complex employment matters to consider. Our senior lawyers can provide detailed advice. We have experience in complex and detailed negotiations to ensure that your interests are protected, but while understanding the need to remain commercially minded in representing your interests. As we deal with many types of businesses we can discover relevant issues that may not have been previously considered.
