Whether purchasing or selling a business, it is pivotal event in the life of an entrepreneur or business owner. At SSP, we make a conscious effort to understand our clients, their businesses, their objectives and strive achieve superior results through collaborative relationships. Often, we were the firm standing beside them when they started the business and we were there to guide them through the growth pains and challenges and celebrated their successes.
Buying a Business
Many lawyers can tell you how to buy a business – we’ll help advise if you should buy the business. If you are buying a business, sometimes it’s difficult to see beyond the excitement of the initial stages, where legal impediments to your success may be lurking. As your business advisor and lawyer, we can help you see the new business “from 50,000 feet up”. Our thorough analysis of your business plan and the business itself, gives you a complete view of all the pieces to determine if this is right deal for you.
Selling a Business
If you are looking to sell a business, we can help you determine if the time is right and help you find the right buyer. We will handle all the details of the sale on your behalf, such as leading negotiation talks and preparing a sale agreement. We are here to help you sell your business to ensure your business is properly valued and the deal structured in such a way you are prepared for your next venture. Our team of business and tax lawyers can work alongside your accountants and colleagues you trust.
