Selling a Business
When a business is to be sold there are extensive financial and long term effects as well as potential benefits that need to be safeguarded. Through the drafting of Non-Compete Clauses and other agreements we will do our best to ensure that a seller of a business receives those benefits as they move on in their lives.

Agreements for Partners and Succession Planning
Many business owners look to bring other partners into ownership with them. There are many vehicles to do this depending on the particular desires of the parties, for example, employee contracts, shareholder agreements, and family oriented structures that safeguard the continuity of the company as ownership interests change.
