The Deal & Afterward: Be Part of a Dream-Team for Your Client

The deal is happening - now what? Bring together trusted partners to create a dream-team for your client as the bulk of the work begins. With CPAs and attorneys working side-by-side, the process of buying and selling a business can go much more smoothly and solidify a trust-filled relationship with your client. We cover the steps of an active deal, starting with a letter of intent and marketing, buyer due diligence, and the purchase agreement. Then, we cover closing and post-deal. In all, key employees, vendors, and customers are addressed, as well as deal structure, indemnity, capital adjustments, and much more. The human changes and legal changes associated with buying and selling a business are addressed with equal weight.
