Purchase And Sale Of A Business In Toronto

Buying or selling a business requires skill and patience, a thorough knowledge of business law, and the ability to understand and anticipate the needs of the parties involved.

For a business lawyer, it also requires the ability to anticipate everything that could go wrong.

At Yigal Rifkind, Barrister & Solicitor, we have the experience to help you negotiate and draft agreements of purchase and sale of a business that will protect your interests. Through our litigation experience, we have seen what can happen when this critical stage is not handled properly. We can use our experience to help you avoid ending up in court, or losing what you have worked for.

Buying a new business, or selling one that you worked to build, can be exciting and can make your dreams of financial independence and stability come true.

Let us help you make sure the dream doesn't turn into a nightmare.

Safeguarding Your Transaction

Purchasing, selling or reorganizing businesses involve a great deal of money, and many competing interests. We will help you deal with:

  • Real estate issues such as leases and ownership
  • Legal documents such as franchise agreements, licenses, security agreements and company bylaws
  • Tax considerations such as HST transfers and unpaid tax liens
  • The needs of stakeholders such as employees, suppliers, associates, clients, shareholders and family members

We can also help you evaluate the other party's documentation, and help you avoid situations in which the other side may not be representing its assets or financial situation accurately.
