Susan Turney knows that representation by an experienced, responsive mergers and acquisition lawyer during the sale or purchase of your business can mean the difference between a good deal, a great deal, a bad deal or no deal.
As a business transactions attorney, Susan Turney is an experienced negotiator of business sales, commonly referred to as “mergers and acquisitions.” She regularly represents buyers and sellers, privately-held companies, investors and families in a wide range of business transactions, including asset sales, stock sales, membership interest redemptions, partnership buy-outs, family business transitions, new company formations and succession planning.
Prior to the sale of a business, Susan Turney works with clients to make sure nondisclosure agreements are in place (“NDA”) with potential buyers. We analyze proposed transactions in conjunction with the client’s accounting team. We form acquisition entities, draft and negotiate letters of intent (“LOI” or “MOU”), perform due diligence review and prepare due diligence responses, draft and negotiate sale contracts such as stock (“SPA”), asset (“APA”), and membership interest purchase agreements. We also draft and review the related documents such as employment agreements, licenses, and bills of sale. After closing, we are there to negotiate post-closing matters, including true-ups, escrow agreements, hold-backs, purchase price adjustments, earnouts and representation and warranty indemnification claims.
Whether you are selling your business to a public company, to private equity, to a privately owned family company or to your own family members, we have the experience to make the process as streamlined as possible for you.
