BUSINESS PURCHASE AND SALES
START A BUSINESS
Generally, the purchase or sale of a business will be in the form of one of the following: an asset purchase, where the buyer purchases some or all of the seller's assets; a stock purchase, where the buyer purchases all or most of the seller's stock and "steps into the shoes" of the seller; or a merger, where two companies combine to form a single, new company.
Regardless of how the transaction is structured, however, the deal usually follows these four steps:
Drafting a formal agreement and pre-closing review
The earlier in this process you consult an attorney, the better. The sale/purchase of a business necessarily involves negotiation, which begins from the moment of initial contact. I will make sure you know what questions to ask, what to say, and what NOT to say, to insure that you get the deal you are after.

Youngblut Law, LLC is a business-centric firm that provides customized legal solutions to businesses at all stages of growth.
Anyone starting a business for the first time is faced with a lot of questions, many of which involve much more than just black letter law: What corporate form should you use to establish your business (Partnership, Corporation, LLC)? Where are you going to get funding for your start-up? How will you effectively market your business? What are reasonable lease terms to offer a landlord?
Having founded, grown, managed, invested in, counseled and sold businesses of my own, I am able to provide far more than strictly legal advice regarding the start-up of your new business. I genuinely want to help you succeed, and my unique experience can help you do just that.
