Safeguard Your Business Transaction
Edward Paul have significant experience representing many types of businesses in various situations. With their knowledge of business law, they are able to protect their clients, anticipate and avoid potential problems, and provide risk assessment. Our firm handles commercial transactions such as the following:
- Buying and selling a business: Each buy‑sell transaction must focus on the particular aspects of the business and the parties involved. Our firm can address common issues involved in buying or selling a business, including non‑compete agreements, financing concerns, and ensuring buyers and sellers receive the most for their investments, products, and businesses.
- Buying and selling interests in a business: We have a command of the many factors involved in buying or selling interests in a business. For a buyer purchasing a business with a history, or for an individual joining a business, there are liabilities to consider. For sellers, there are considerations to be made regarding payment, the buyer’s rights, and control of the business. When we structure transactions, we work with your accountant to minimize tax implications and provide proper advice to business owners. We also handle buying and selling business interests during bankruptcy proceedings.
- Buying and selling commercial real estate: The potential for liability in a commercial real estate transaction is enhanced due to environmental laws, defect disclosure, and laws regarding liabilities after closing. Our firm will work with your accountant to review the tax implications of purchases, sales, and real estate tax assessments so they can be structured to meet your needs. We are also knowledgeable about the challenges that come with financing commercial real estate due to lending regulations and revised lending policies by financial institutions.
