BUSINESS PURCHASES AND SALES

Buying or selling a business can be a very complex, complicated process that takes time.

Business purchase and sale agreements define the specific details for the purchase and sale of a company. Once this document is signed, it becomes a legally binding contract between the parties involved.  Mavinkurve & Patel’s attorneys conduct a thorough review of the contract to ensure our client’s principal concerns are addressed.
