West Bend Business Acquisitions

We have assisted many business clients in expanding their product line and market share. This is generally accomplished with an Asset Purchase Agreement as opposed to an Entity Agreement, so as to minimize successor liability.

The value that we bring to these transactions is the negotiation of the Asset Purchase Agreement, which includes various representations and warranties for the benefit of the purchaser. Besides ensuring that our clients obtain the desired line of product and related equipment and inventory free and clear of all liens, we also structure the acquisition payments in a manner so that any post-closing claims, undisclosed or unknown liabilities are assumed and paid for by the seller and not our client. Accordingly, these Purchase Agreements emphasize proactive client protection techniques, including escrows at closing, claims procedures, and seller Covenants Not to Compete. We also provide advice to our clients along with their tax accountant as to the most advantageous tax consequences of the transaction.

We will also assist the client in reviewing the acquisition to determine whether it should have a separate entity organization as to the allocation of future risks.
