GET HELP WITH BUSINESS EXIT

“Whether you’re a retiring owner/operator or an investor wanting to cash out, I can help you successfully navigate your exit.”

I know how important your exit is.

I know your upcoming business exit is one of the most important transactions of your life. This is true whether you’re an investor looking to cash out or move on, a business owner looking to retire, or a little bit of both.

With a practice focused on M&A transactions, a track record of both counseling clients on exit strategies and helping them make those strategies a reality, and a vetted rolodex of deal professionals, I can help you make a successful exit your reality.

I can advise and assist with all aspects of exit planning and execution so I encourage you to book a consultation so we can discuss your exit plans as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes I have clients ask me this question and the answer is always a very emphatic “yes.” You simply can’t afford to rely either on DIY sources (like the internet) or even worse, the other side’s attorney on as important a transaction as a business purchase or sale. You absolutely need to have competent legal advice that you can rely on and that is for your interests only. In fact, you should know that the other attorney in the transaction has absolutely no obligation to do anything in your interests. The other attorney is actually legally bound to do everything for the best interests of the other party even if that means making you pay the price.

My fee varies widely depending on the stage, size and complexity of your transaction, the services you retain me for (e.g. whether you would like me to help you with the due diligence phase) and the number of other professionals involved with whom I will need to work. As much possible I always quote flat fees for my services.

I recommend allowing for an absolute minimum of least six months for most transactions. This does not include time for due diligence which usually can take many more months. If SBA financing is involved, I recommend allowing for even more time for the transaction to close and making sure that everyone has the flexibility to accommodate closing delays. As with many federal government underwritten loan programs, SBA-backed loans are notorious for being slow to close.

Most business purchase or sale transactions will involve a number of other professionals. At a minimum it will involve a CPA and usually a commercial banker.

If you already have your own team of professional that you work with then I’m happy to work with them. On the other hand, if you need recommendations, I maintain a network of highly vetted professionals who can assist with your transaction.
