Due Diligence on Behalf of the Buyer
If you're buying a business, one of the main roles of your legal adviser is to assist you in
diligently investigating the value of the business. We carefully examine to see whether there are any hidden liabilities or risks might affect the value of the business in your hands. We look at such matters as unsatisfied judgments, litigation risk on employment or contract issues and tax returns.
Advice for the Seller on Financing and Disclosure Issues
If you're selling a business, your attorney will focus on financing terms and disclosures. You need to make sure that your buyer is in a position to meet the full purchase commitment if the transaction will go forward on any terms other than cash in full. We can look at financing alternatives ranging from a secured bank loan to self-financing terms, and make sure that you're adequately covered in case the buyer goes into default for any reason.
Additionally, we will advise you on your duty to disclose all conditions and circumstances of your business. Disclosure will help you avoid serious problems in the future, especially if you later need to pursue your purchaser for defaults on the purchase price. If you didn't disclose important information that a reasonable buyer would take into account in either the purchase itself or the price, you could face a formidable counterclaim on your breach of contract action against the buyer.
Advising You of the Tax Consequences
With extensive experience in tax law, Alessandro F. Marra can also offer valuable advice about
important tax planning considerations related to either the purchase or the sale of a business.
