Mergers & Acquisitions Lawyer – Buy-Sell a Business – Business Buyout


Buy a Business – Don’t Buy Seller’s Liabilities

When you buy a business, the seller’s liabilities may be hidden to make the sale more attractive. It’s like buying a used car because it looks mean and sexy, but after you buy it, the car won’t go. Buyer beware! You don’t want to inherit someone else’s problems.

Jay Eckhaus is a Business Lawyer who will help you negotiate, review and draft your purchase contract. He knows pitfalls to avoid, questions to ask and legal wording you need to protect you against being stuck with Seller’s unwanted baggage.

•   Startup and Small Business Acquisitions – Attorney for Buyers and Sellers
