Buying and Selling Businesses

We Will Guide You Through the Business Purchase Process

Experienced Legal Service for Buying a Business and/or Selling a Business in Wisconsin

Purchasing or selling the assets or shares of stock in a business can be an exciting event, but is also an event that can have significant implications on your financial future. Both buyers and sellers must be careful to protect their interests and rights in any transaction, and need the counsel and representation of an experienced business transaction attorney to guide them through the transaction in a proper way.

At the law firm of Haley Palmersheim, S.C., our attorneys have experience representing clients in a wide range of business law matters, including business formation, writing a purchase and sale agreement, and buying a business and/or selling a business in Madison and the surrounding communities of Wisconsin. We will review all aspects of your transaction to ensure that your interests are protected and that you are getting what you expect out of the purchase or sale.

Contact our Madison, Wisconsin office to consult with a Haley Palmersheim transactional lawyer or business transaction attorney about your business transaction.

Considerations in Business Purchases and Sales

From the initial stage of buying a business or selling a business up to the final closing, there are many aspects of the transaction to consider in order to protect your financial interests.

These include:

  • Proper valuation of the business and its inventory
  • Real estate and inventory liens
  • Structuring the sale as an asset purchase or stock purchase
  • Organize and conduct due diligence
  • Franchise and non-compete agreements in place
  • Financial statements and other important documents
  • Proper drafting of the asset purchase and sale agreement or stock purchase agreement, and other contracts and documents needed for the transaction
  • Leases

Our lawyers at Haley Palmersheim, S.C., are able to help you answer these questions and understand the other issues that may arise during your transaction. We work closely with CPAs in business valuation to ensure that our clients’ financial concerns are met.

If you are thinking about buying a business or selling a business, you should not simply rely on a broker to facilitate the purchase. Only an experienced transactional lawyer can anticipate and resolve all of the various issues that may arise in the transaction.
