Unlike buying or selling a major asset such as residential real estate, the transfer of businesses and interests therein is not as heavily regulated. It is incumbent upon the parties to such a transaction to properly document the disclosures, indemnifications, representations and warranties, as well as assign risk between the parties. Further considerations must be given in the case of a merger of two entities to the structure, rights and responsibilities of ownership. These types of commercial transactions also involve significant tax consequences for the participants. It is important to receive sophisticated and creative advice on such matters. Whether acquiring or divesting businesses, we focus on creative problem solving and providing the most efficient means to achieve our clients’ goals.
