Too often business owners want their usual attorney to represent them in a business sale. But because this person is inexperienced in M&A, they tend to be slow and ultraconservative. We’ve seen buyers walk from a deal because the seller’s attorney was being unreasonable.
A seasoned M&A attorney has seen it all before. They know the language, the sticking points, and all the ways a deal can go wrong. What’s more, they understand negotiations and how to protect their client’s interests without blowing up the opportunity.
The right attorney is a deal maker, not a deal breaker, and will keep a transaction moving forward – as long as it meets your goals.
