Buying and Selling

Buying and Selling

When you think of buying and selling, you may think of an arrangement between two parties: the buyer and the seller. In some cases, however, a third party is required—a lawyer who specializes in the buying and selling of businesses and property. For these large purchases (i.e. companies, real estate, commercial property, etc.), it’s wise to consult with a business attorney who can prepare the necessary legal documents for you.


Buying and Selling Businesses

There is a lot involved in the buying and selling of a business. When buying, for instance, you need to do your due diligence to research the value of the company as well as any pending legal matters involving the corporation. You’ll also want to negotiate the price in order to get the best value possible for your dollar.

On the other side of the transaction, sellers must get all of their financial accounts and documents in order prior to the sale. They will also want to participate in the negotiation process in order to earn the highest possible profit for the sale of their business. Moreover, there are legal documents and contracts to be drawn up. It’s too much for one person to handle in most cases, especially if you’re inexperienced with business law. It’s likely you’ll need the professional assistance of an experienced business attorney to help you navigate the process of buying or selling a business.


Buying and Selling Real Estate

Buying and selling real estate is also a complex matter that requires the help of a real estate lawyer. Whether you’re buying or selling residential property or commercial property, the process is similar. A good real estate attorney can help you negotiate price and draw up contracts, for instance.

5 star ratingI found Stephen Ensberg office on yelp when searching for a lawyer who specialized in business.  He helped me to interpret a buyout offer for my shares of a business.  I thought I was pretty smart as a business professional and had seen plenty of legal paperwork in my line of business but this particular agreement seemed like it was written in a different language.  Mr. Ensberg was able to explain it to me in words I could understand and he also found it to be very one sided and not in my best interest to sign.  He wrote me a letter to present to my business partners and we are currently working on a new agreement.  Without his recommendation I could have gotten myself into problems down the line.  He answered all of my questions personally via email and over the phone which I really appreciated.  I hope to not need his services in the future but if I do I'll be heading straight to his office!
