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.

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.

Easy process!

Kim and the team were very easy to deal with and the creation of our document required only one minor revision, which was not a problem at all. I would happily engage w3ip to complete work for us again.
