Buying or Selling a Business or Franchise in Northern California

Playing Chess with your businessBuying a business or franchise can be one of the most exciting events in a person's life. Passing your business on to the next generation can provide an immense feeling of pride and satisfaction, but can also pose some interesting legal challenges.

Persons thinking about buying a business should not solely rely on a business broker to protect their interests. If you are buying a franchise, remember the franchisor may be more interested in selling you the franchise that they are in supporting your business. Many questions face a business buyer that only an experienced business lawyer can answer.

  • Are there valuation issues?
  • Are there any existing liens against the real estate or inventory?
  • Have all employment and other taxes been paid?
  • Are the terms of the Franchise Circular understood?
  • Are the financial and other records accurate?
  • How will the inventory be valued at closing?

Our attorneys can get answers to these and the many more issues that will arise during the due diligence process.
