Business Sales

A Chicago Business Sale Lawyer Can Be an Important Ally

Five decades of helping clients in Chicago buy and sell businesses

Whether planning to grow a business by acquiring resources and market share from a competitor or trying to get the most return for a business after years of building in Chicago, buying and selling a business involve complex transactions with multiple steps. The Chicago acquisition attorneys of the Clinton Law Firm use their more than five decades of collective experience to help their clients get the most out of buying or selling a business.

Steps in buying or selling a business

Buying or selling a business in Chicago can be complex from the start. Negotiating the sale of an operating business requires the parties to settle complex issues of valuation and allocate ongoing liabilities and contract obligations. Depending on how the business is organized, the rights of shareholders, partners and members to object or buy out can further complicate the transaction. Addressing these issues before they become a problem requires the skill and practical knowledge of a Chicago business law attorney.

Especially for corporate mergers and consolidations, keeping such transactions running smoothly requires the cooperation of the involved shareholders and compliance with the Illinois Business Corporations Act. Dissenting shareholders have numerous legal rights that the company must keep in mind when negotiating a corporate sale of this type. The Chicago mergers and acquisitions lawyers of the Clinton Law Firm have helped guide consolidations, sales and mergers of all types to successful and lucrative completion. Businesses can count on our experienced Chicago acquisitions attorneys to do the same for them.

As Chicago acquisition lawyers, we are adept at negotiating and memorializing merger and sale agreements that address the issues that commonly arise in these types of transactions. We stand by our work and our clients throughout the process and are prepared to step into the role of litigators should irreconcilable differences arise.
