Raleigh Business Acquisition Lawyer Protecting Your Interests in Acquisitions and Sales
Buying or selling a business is one of the most complicated things you can do. If you’re considering the acquisition of a business or the potential sale of your own business, a Raleigh business acquisitions attorney at NC Planning can guide you through each step of the process.
The right business transaction can be the key to meeting your short-term and/or long-term business goals. But before you buy or sell any business, it is imperative to retain an attorney who can anticipate potential problems and provide effective solutions.
How Can An Attorney Help With An Acquisition or Sale?
A business attorney at NC Planning can perform key due diligence, assist you in valuation, and serve as your advisor throughout a business sale or purchase to ensure that your goals are met, the transaction is fully compliant, and your long-term interests are served and protected.
We have been trusted by the sellers and purchasers of countless businesses in the state of North Carolina. Our team has experience handling business transactions in a wide range of industries.
What Should You Know When Buying A Business?
If you purchase an existing business, while it may be more convenient and less risky than launching your own startup, you must conduct due diligence to learn more about the business. You need to know:
- What is the financial condition and history of the business?
- Has the business been sued? Are there claims pending?
- Who are the customers? Who is the competition?
The right business acquisitions lawyer can help you uncover and gather the details you need for an informed decision. We assist business buyers with research, due diligence, permits, licensing, and more while helping them negotiate the best possible transaction terms.
What Should You Know If You’re Selling a Business?
Owners who are selling a business also need a business attorney’s insights and services. If you’re not careful, you could owe a sizable sum to the IRS after selling a business. The legal team at NC Planning can:
- Reduce the negative tax consequences of selling a business
- Ensure that the required paperwork is prepared
- Ensure that the deal closes quickly and efficiently
How Can You Protect Yourself When Making Business Transactions?
The question that must be explicitly answered at the beginning of a business transaction is this: What exactly is being purchased and sold?
In this circumstance, one of a business acquisitions attorney’s tasks is making certain that the buyer and seller are “on the same page.” Your attorney will also:
- Confirm whether or not there are liens against business assets
- Perform due diligence that includes credit checks and title exams
- Draft or review the legal documents required for the transaction
- Help you with the closing and all other aspects of the transaction
Most importantly, the legal team at NC Planning will work diligently to ensure that the sale or purchase of the business proceeds as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
What Are the Keys To A Successful Business Transaction?
The keys to a successful business transaction are always good communication and thoughtful preparation.
When you acquire a business, you’ll need a business plan that protects your operation by putting solutions in place before legal problems can emerge. We can create that plan on your behalf.
Our attorneys advise and represent business clients at every stage of ownership, whether they are forming, buying, maintaining, selling, or winding down a business.
What Happens After You Buy A Business?
If a legal matter arises, you will have the assurance that comes with knowing that your business attorney is already thoroughly familiar with your operations, policies, and procedures. NC Planning provides comprehensive business planning services that may involve:
- Reviewing or preparing employment contracts, leases, or other business documents
- Auditing to identify and remedy potential problems before they become issues
- Succession planning or planning for the sale of the business
- Trusted general counsel services that are at your fingertips
