Get Help Purchasing Or Selling A Business In Toronto
Our clients often enter the realm of commerce through the purchase of an existing business. The acquisition of an existing business, also known as a “going concern” demands the involvement of competent legal counsel. Whether it is the assets or the shares of the going concern that are being purchased, it is of the utmost importance to ensure that the necessary due diligence and investigations are conducted in order to safeguard the client’s investment. Failure to carry out proper searches and thorough due diligence will invariably expose a client’s venture to distressing and costly liability and can be the cause of overpayment for a business that is not worth the price demanded by the seller.Similarly, our clients occasionally plan for the sale of their business and involve our legal counsel early on in the negotiation process where we are often instrumental in assisting with the obtaining of maximum value and minimal exposure to future claims by avoiding lingering representations, warranties and covenants sought by purchaser’s counsel.
At the law firm of RV Law, we take the time to understand your business, not just the laws that govern it. Whether you own a small family business or you are a corporate principal, we have the experience and the legal knowledge to assist you in protecting your short-term and long-term interests.
