Suncoast Business Consultants highly recommends consulting with an attorney when buying and selling a business. There are many details that must be reviewed when making the decision to invest in or sell a business.

Buyers will need an attorney to review their purchase and sales contract, lease terms, assist with closing and provide legal advice not only during the buying process but also from time to time while operating the business.

Sellers may or may not already have an attorney who they refer to when problems arise. If not, it is highly recommended that you hire one to guide you through the process of selling your business. The lawyer should review any documents that you will sign.

If you are an international buyer who is purchasing a business through one of the various VISA programs then you will need an experienced immigration attorney who can explain the process to and help prevent you from making costly mistakes. Any errors can set back your case and prevent you from accomplishing your goals.

A business attorney can be a critical part of your advisory team, no matter what stage your business is in. When do you need a lawyer? Although the answer depends on your business and your particular circumstances, it’s generally worthwhile to consult one before making any decision that could have legal ramifications.
