CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS | BUYING OR SELLING
Buying or selling a business, or even an interest in an existing business, can become complex. It takes qualified and experienced representation in order to keep the complexities from negatively affecting your transaction. Proper legal assistance is critical when negotiating a price and managing and preventing risks on both sides. We can greatly assist you in all matters related to corporate transactions.
LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR BUYING OR SELLING BUSINESSES
Taylor Law helps clients pay particular attention to buyer and seller warranties in the agreement that could cause them serious trouble later on. As a seller, you want to ensure that you are not making representations and warranties that will come back to haunt you at a later date. Similarly, a buyer obtaining a business or an interest in a business wants to ensure that the Seller is willing to stand by their representations about the business so that they will not be weighed down by legal demands from the seller at a later time. Our firm helps clients by assuring them that the documents involved in the purchase or sale reflect the client’s expectations about the actual purchase or sale so that they can feel confident about the decision they are making.

Our goal is to actively protect your best interests whether you are a buyer or a seller. It is extremely important to have a qualified attorney review your agreement so that it accurately reflects your expectations and provides protections that can help minimize your risk.

- Company viability

- Change of ownership
HOW CAN AN ATTORNEY HELP WITH A RESTRUCTURE?
Restructuring theoretically results in a better organized, more effective, and more profitable organization. To make that theory a reality, you need to know your new structure is legally sound. Taylor Law Offices should be contacted immediately to give your company accurate and informative advice on the legal impacts, if any, your corporate reorganization may have. Taking the time to find an experienced and knowledgeable attorney now can save you time and money in the future, not to mention boost your efficiency.
RESTRUCTURING WHILE MAINTAINING BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Even the most successful companies can require a restructuring or reorganization at times. Our legal team has experience skillfully managing restructuring and reorganization without damaging the business operations that are currently taking place.

BUSINESS, CORPORATE AND PARTNERSHIP DISPUTES
Maintaining healthy communication and relationships within a business or corporate endeavor could not be more important to the success of a company. Unfortunately, many times a dispute will arise either externally or internally. Such matters, when not expediently and fully resolved, can lead to the financial demise of an entity.
Since business relationships are of such importance, gaining the assistance of a Taylor Law can be critical to your company’s success. Your attorney can alleviate a great deal of the stress involved in facilitating an end to conflicts and disagreements between the following entities:
- Businesses. If you have a business to business (B2B) relationship with a mom and pop shop or any larger company, disagreements and misunderstandings can happen.
- Corporations. LLC, INC., whatever the case is, a corporation is at-the-ready to lawyer up and make things costly for you.
- Partnerships. No matter how much you see eye-to-eye with your business partner, staying on the same page 100% of the time is difficult.
HOW TO AVOID LITIGATION
Corporate and business disputes can be draining of your time, energy and resources. No matter the seemingly complex nature of such a disagreement, your legal team can pursue the best course of action toward resolution. Many matters, though they seem virtually impossible to resolve outside of the courtroom, can actually be settled through mediation or other methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), saving your company time and money.
WHEN LITIGATION IS NECESSARY
While amicable ends to disputes are always preferred, your attorney can also fight tenaciously for your interests at trial when necessary. Whatever your specific needs merit, procuring the counsel of a skilled law firm can allow you to focus on what is most important to you—running a successful business.
CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
When buying or selling a business, it is vital to cover key points, in writing. This means including price and timing of payment, of course. It also means specifying the physical assets that go with the transfer, including:
- Computer programs
- Customer lists
If the seller intends to keep certain customers or open up a competing business, this must be discussed and an agreement not to compete (non-compete agreement) may be required. The parties may agree on a mediator or arbitrator to resolve issues that arise after the change in ownership is implemented.
CORPORATE STRUCTURE CHANGE
The corporate structure of your business can have important consequences in terms of protection from creditors and amount of taxes owed. We will advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of:
- Sole proprietorships
- Limited liability company structures
We counsel on how to use these tools to provide for proper business succession at the death of a partner. We professionally assist with the drafting of all documents so your intentions are carried out properly as your organization is restructured.
