Business and Corporate Transactions and Governance

 

 

You have just heard about the "deal of a lifetime," and you've got to get in on it. Perhaps you are ready to quit your job, buy a commercial property, or buy a company and be your own boss. Or maybe you already run a successful business and a promising new venture could enable you to retire early.

Entrepreneurs know how rewarding owning and running a successful business can be. Most are optimistic people with confidence in their ability to "get the deal done." Because entrepreneurs are comfortable with a certain degree of risk, however, they may charge ahead without fully considering the details behind the opportunity. Unfortunately, many learn too late that they should have done a more thorough investigation.

At Summerfield, Willen, Silverberg & Limsky, our business lawyers are entrepreneurs themselves, having run successful law practices for a total of more than 30 years. Unlike many large and impersonal national firms, our attorneys offer personalized legal advice for our clients who own businesses or hope to in the future.

We can help you negotiate the best terms, conduct due diligence, and fully understand the ins and outs of a deal before you commit to a venture. We can also draw on an established network of financial, real estate, insurance and other professionals to provide whatever additional resources you may need.
