“The level of service and the honesty that comes with Heath doesn’t exist anymore in other law practices. For example, during a litigation process, Heath told us that the legal fees involved would not be worth the outcome. Instead of letting us rack up legal bills, he advised us to walk away and save ourselves a lot of money. What lawyer gives up an opportunity to bill clients? Heath is an honest attorney.”

The Fundamentals Of A Buy-Sell Agreement

The Fundamentals Of A Buy-Sell Agreement

A buy-sell agreement is essential to your company’s long-term security, and it’s important to understand the basics of how these types of agreements function. A buy-sell agreement is a legal document that specifies what happens to a business in the event of unexpected occurrences, such as the death or departure of an owner or partner. Let’s say for instance the co-owner of a business doesn’t want to be involved with a company anymore or is ready to retire. If the company has a validly executed buy-sell agreement in place, the price and and other terms of a buyout will be outlined by a binding contract. Such terms should include when a co-owner can sell their company shares, who is allowed to buy the shares, and how much the buyer will pay. If the company doesn’t have a buy-sell agreement, all of these variables are potential areas of dispute, which can lead to expensive and time-consuming legal battles.
