Changing Career Paths: The Purchase Or Sale Of A Business

At Cantwell & Goldman, PA, we represent buyers and sellers in the purchase or sale of businesses. Our firm assists clients throughout the entire process — from contract to closing — to ensure their financial and business interests are protected.

Selling Your Company

Many entrepreneurs thrive on the startup of a business. Once a company is established, they often wish to sell and move forward to a new project. Long-time business owners contemplating retirement may also be in a position where selling their business to a third party or family member is the best path.

At Cantwell & Goldman, PA, our attorneys will work with you to get full value for your business. We assist with everything from business valuation to negotiations. When a sale price has been agreed upon we will draft an ironclad contract that ensures your financial interests are protected. We also put other legal safeguards — such as confidentiality agreements — in place where necessary.

Sales among family members involve more than money. Family dynamics often come into play. Our lawyers are cognizant of all of these factors when helping transition a family business to the next generation.

Buying A Business

Buying a business is one of the largest financial purchases you will ever make. It is crucial to work with experienced lawyers who understand the financial and legal risks and can help mitigate these risks throughout the purchase process.

Our attorneys have the legal, business and financial knowledge needed to guide you through the process. Matthew J. Monaghan has a Master of Science (MST) in taxation and previously worked as a certified public accountant (CPA) (license inactive), and attorney Michael Sjuggerud has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in international business. This knowledge enables us to develop purchase contracts that protect your financial, legal and business interests.

Our goal is to be your legal partner for the duration of your business. After the purchase is complete, we have a range of services we can provide to help you achieve your business goals.
