"Grow or perish" has become a mantra for diverse companies and business leaders across the spectrum of industry and commerce. The most direct path to market share expansion and enhanced success is often the acquisition of a competitor, a strategic asset purchase, or the merger of two entities with complementary strengths. For buyers and sellers alike, the potential rewards are considerable-and so are the risks.

Shareholder buy-sell agreements are among more common contracts requiring development or modification when ownership or control of a business changes hands. Essentially, a buy-sell agreement can be structured to govern partners' and shareholders' rights to sell their shares when certain major events occur. They may offer protection for an investment that is later impacted by another partner's death, divorce, or divestiture, for example. Such contracts have important applications for shareholders in limited liability companies (LLCs) and certain other corporate structures. Whether you are preparing to buy a company, sell a company, divest your interests or complete a merger, our legal team will adopt your perspective and keep your goals in the forefront.
