Skillful Review And Preparation Of Your Buy-Sell Agreements
Beginning a business with another person or more than one person is an effective way to ensure that the business has all of the talent it needs to succeed. But, it is important to enter into an ownership arrangement with all aspects clearly defined, including what will happen when one owner is ready to leave the business.
A buy/sell agreement dictates what happens when an owner wants to leave the business. Buy/sell agreements should be established at the outset of a business, so that each owner clearly understands his or her rights and responsibilities. A well-drafted buy/sell agreement can be very strong insurance against excessive disruption should an owner seek to leave the business.
