GLG LLP Assists with Simple and Complex Purchases or Sales
Selling a Business
After spending time, money, and manpower developing, growing, and evolving a venture, selling a business is a big decision and can be a daunting task. Advance planning and consulting with a knowledgeable business lawyer will help a business owner obtain the best price and minimize their risk in a sale. GLG LLP helps clients identify risk, mitigate potential issues and ensure a successful transaction.
Buying a Business
Starting out a new venture is risky, and a good way to mitigate some of that risk is to purchase an existing business rather than growing one from the ground up. However, due diligence is critical for anyone looking to acquire an existing entity and the associated brand, assets, or real property. A trusted and experienced lawyer will ensure their client is protected from legal, tax or reputational risks through careful review of all facets of a purchase. GLG LLP helps clients thoroughly evaluate a prospective business, assess their options, make sure they pay a fair price, and successfully grow their new venture.
Real Estate Lawyers On-Hand
When purchasing or selling a business, real property is often involved. Whether the existing business was party to a commercial lease or owned property outright, a purchase or sale transaction will often require the skills of an experienced real estate lawyer. GLG LLP has a branch of the firm dedicated to the practice of commercial real estate law, saving clients from having to seek outside counsel on this aspect of a business transaction. The lawyers often work together on complex transactions, saving clients time and money by managing all aspects of a deal in-house.
