Buying Or Selling a Business

We make buying or selling a business a smooth process

Whether you are buying or selling a business, you will need a lawyer to help manage the process and draft or review the contract for sale.

OpenLegal have considerable experience with business sales, and are familiar with the issues involved with all steps in the process, including:

  • Contract for Sale of the business
  • Negotiations between buyers, purchasers, and brokers.
  • Transfer of ownership of assets
  • Specific assets to be transferred
  • Confidentiality
  • Intellectual Property
  • Employees
  • Relevant warranties; and
  • Restraint clause
  • Transferring or assigning a commercial lease

Whether you are buying or selling a business, it is important to have a business lawyer review the Sale contract, as well as provide advice on the sale / purchase process overall. A lawyer will make sure you are aware of all the legal implications in the agreement, and will provide advice on the best ways to make sure that the agreement is performed. In the event the agreement is breached, a lawyer will be able to advise.
