Purchasing or selling a business can be structured in many different ways. Generally, a purchase/sale will fall within two broad categories; a sale of the assets of a company or a sale of the company itself. There are advantages and risks associated with each approach. Depending on the specific facts and circumstances of the deal, one approach may be more beneficial than the other. In a purchase of the company itself, you will likely become responsible for many of the liabilities of the seller. In a deal structured as an asset purchase, subject to certain key exceptions, you will be largely shielded from the liabilities of the seller. We can help structure the deal so that your exposure is limited to the greatest extent possible.
