My business is interested in buying another business. Where do we begin?

When another business approaches you about buying your business the first step is to only talk in vague and general terms until you consult your attorney. Your attorney will tell you what you can disclose and when and what the risks are in disclosing the wrong kind of information or disclosing information at the wrong stage.

I Want to Sell My Business. What’s the next step?

When you think you’re interested in buying another business the proper place to start is being able to articulate why you want to buy that business and how that business is going to fit strategically with your business; strategically and financially. Once you’ve got that figured out and you can articulate that and you may be using your CPA with the financial side of things, make sure you involve your attorney early.

Why should I legally organize my business?

Legally organizing your business really is about having some credibility, having some branding and marketing panache to go with your business. Forming a legal business means that you’ve gone to the state and you’ve formally set up some sort of an entity that has a name and establishing your name in that way protects your name from use by competitors.

What are the benefits of organizing as an LLC versus a corporation?

Both an LLC and a corporation give you a liability shield to protect your personal assets against business liabilities.  But an LLC is much more flexible so that you can tailor the structure of your organization to your particular needs, your owners and your investors.  An LLC doesn’t need shareholder meetings, doesn’t need a board of directors or board of directors meetings.  You can choose how it’s taxed.  An LLC can be taxed as a C-Corporation or an S-Corporation or a partnership.

Why do I need non-disclosure agreements in my business, and whom should I ask to sign them?

Whether or not you need a non-disclosure agreement in your business depends on whether or not you have information in your business that would have value as an asset.  Information that has separate value as an asset could include customer lists, could include trade secrets including specially processes that you’ve created that nobody else is aware of, could include unpatented inventions that you use in your business.
