Advice on Selling a Business in Florida
Selling your business is a tough decision. There are many factors to consider, such as figuring out what the business is worth and considering competing offers. We make sure that all of the clients we represent have their interests protected. We also ensure that the transaction proceeds quickly and smoothly, that excluded assets are properly protected, that the documents are all appropriate to achieve your goals, and that seller financing is documented fully.
Buying or Selling a Franchise
When it comes to buying and selling a business that is part of a franchise, there are additional legal issues and requirements to consider. In order to sell a franchise business, you must first get consent from the franchisor and the landlord. At the law offices of Marlyn J. Wiener, we can incorporate the necessary franchise-related documentation and clauses into the purchase agreement to ensure that you remain protected.
If you are a franchisor, we will ensure that the person purchasing the property has the corrected applications submitted, and that they have done everything in the required manner. We will also confirm that all assets and obligations are transferred to the new owner.
