Why do I need a lawyer when buying or selling a business?

Transferring the ownership of a business is a significant transaction, one that you’ll want to ensure you get 100% right.

If you’re buying a business you’ll want to a lawyer to ensure the structure is appropriate to your needs, and also protects you from any debts or liabilities. If you’re selling a business, it’s important to seek legal advice to ensure the best return within the shortest period of time.

Our commercial lawyers are experts in business purchases and sales, assisting you in protecting your liabilities and ensuring your documentation is tailored to your needs.

What will they provide?

Your selected lawyer will review your business sale agreement to identify any liabilities and ensure you’re getting the best result for your transaction. This includes due diligence, intellectual property considerations and reviewing / adding clauses where necessary

It’s important to reiterate that franchise contracts are written by franchisors – so they are almost always one-sided! A franchise lawyer will ensure your agreement suits your needs and is fair on both parties.

Simply brilliant - mind blown.

Ryan is a wealth of information. He’s exceptional, sharp, very knowledgeable and articulate when it comes to matters of the law, and has strong commercial acumen with an entrepreneurial mindset (very uncommon traits among lawyers). He’s also extremely service oriented. I wish he could have a firm with multiple clones of himself... Wouldn’t need to go anywhere else!
