  • Formation of new Legal Entity or Entities (for purposes of, for example,  acquiring the Business Assets, purchase property, enter into lease, etc.).
  • Offer to Purchase, Term Sheet and/or Letter of Intent: consider whether it will be binding or non-binding and understand the benefits and disadvantages of each.
  • Due Diligence.
  • Understand the difference between a Business Asset Sale vs. Stock Purchase and Sale
  • Business Asset Purchase and Sale Agreement
  • Real Estate issues: Purchase & Sale Agreement, Negotiations with Seller, Title Issues, or Lease, if Lease Assignment or New Lease, Negotiations with Landlord.
  • Intellectual Property Rights for Sale:  Trademark, Domains, Designs, Web Site, etc.
  • Inventory Purchase issues: usable versus non-usable; cost.
  • Components and Issues specific to the type of Business you are purchasing.
  • Local and State Permitting; Establishment License
  • Supplies: Types of Supplies; Supplier/Vendor information and contracts.
