Buying a Business

New York Purchase Attorneys

If you think you have the ability to be an entrepreneur, or if you are looking to diversify your portfolio -- you may be a great candidate to buy an existing business instead.

Buying a business is more complicated than  a check or signing a contract. If you are considering purchasing a business, you need an experienced business lawyer to review your business contracts and protect your interests.

Acquiring an existing company is a complex process and carries substantial risk and the potential for contingent liabilities.  How will you ensure the existing customer base and Goodwill of your acquisition target will transfer along with the company you intend to purchase?

Our attorneys will guide you through the process, perform due diligence and help you understand the negotiation of crucial protections and how to structure the transaction for success. Learn more about the issues surrounding buying a business in a free initial consultation and call 212-233-0666 or contact the business New York purchase lawyers at our firm.
