Moreover, the process of buying s business usually includes:
Investigation and Negotiation Stage:
Together with the client we will assess the status of the transaction and determine what has been done already. And how far negotiations have come. Now, we will discuss your motivations for buying or selling and discuss the terms of the deal. Such as the purchase price/valuation and payment terms. An advice for you with respect to the best structure of the business sale (i.e. asset sale, stock (equity) sale or corporate reorganization). Your tax situation before and after the transaction, the financing for the transaction. And the allocation of the purchase price (if it is an asset sale). We may have to check that all securities laws will have been complied with.
Further, we will prepare or review the term sheet (aka “letter of intent”) between the parties and guide you in the decision. Whether, to ask for a confidentiality agreement during due diligence and whether to make the term sheet binding or non binding.
Prepare Transaction Documents:
Moreover, we will carefully draft and negotiate the sale agreement and all other closing documents, such as promissory notes and security agreements; assemble or prepare owner/shareholder/board of director approvals and consents needed for the transaction. Furthermore, we will make sure that all required third party consents (landlord, contract partners and so forth) will be provided.

Florida business attorneys
As Florida business attorneys we make it our business to keep small business owners out of court and business litigation. However, sometimes it cannot be avoided. We can help you enforce your rights in Florida or defend any case brought against you. Before we begin any business litigation on your behalf, we will always make sure that any litigation makes sound business sense and won’t be a waste of your time and money.
Examples of business disputes that end up in litigation include:
- Breach of Contract Disputes: A person does not comply with the rules set forth in a contract between the two of you;
- Tortious Interference with Contracts and Business Relationships: A person maliciously interferes with your performance under a contract. It prevents you from entering into a contract or helps somebody to breach a contract;
- Fraud and Misrepresentation: A person (1) represented a material fact. (2) the facts were untrue. (3) that somebody knew it was untrue. (4) the representation was made with the intent to deceive and to induce you to act upon it. (5) you relied on it and. (6) you suffered damages by acting on the misrepresentation;
- Unfair Competition: A person steals your brand, business reputation, customer list or similar property for his own business advantage. And causes your business damages by doing so;
- Conversion: A person takes your property and uses it without your authorization. And thus makes it impossible for you to enjoy the rights that come with ownership of that property.
