There comes a time when all company owners must consider significant transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions. It is always a good idea to have certain agreements in place long before this time comes to protect the business interests of owners. Our lawyers at Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos, LLP, regularly help draft and negotiate buy-sell agreements for owners of all types of businesses.
A buy-sell agreement protects your interests should another owner want or need to sell their own interests. Many situations can arise in which a buy-sell agreement comes into play, including when an owner:
- Files bankruptcy
- Passes away
- Wants out of the business for another reason
In this situation, instead of leaving the sale up to the discretion of the owner or the courts, a buy-sell agreement allows the remaining owners the first option to purchase the shares. This can be essential for the continued success of the company and is an agreement that all business owners should have in place.
Negotiating Mergers and Acquisitions
When you are purchasing or selling a company, it is critical to have the counsel of a skilled mergers and acquisitions attorney. Our firm assists with letters of intent, pricing negotiations, restructuring decisions, due diligence, and more. These are complex transactions that often involve a substantial amount of risk. We work to ensure your rights and interests are protected no matter what side of the deal you are on.
