Business Acquisitions and Sales in Illinois

When you are buying or selling a business in Illinois, there are several factors that must be considered. These may include:

  • Business Valuation
  • Letters of Intent
  • Financing
  • Stock/Asset Purchase Agreements
  • Non-Compete Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • New Entity Structure
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Risk Assessment and Management

Business mergers and acquisitions do not always go smoothly. Legal hurdles sometimes arise from issues such as dissenting shareholders challenging the transaction. Part of our job is to anticipate problems before they happen. We thoroughly research and address every issue so that complications are avoided and the deal is preserved. We also use our experience to identify hidden benefits that can put our clients in an even better position once the transaction is completed.

During the purchase, sale or merger of a business, due diligence is important to ensure that you are in compliance with all laws and regulations and that all business advantages and disadvantages are addressed. The corporate lawyers at Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C. have been doing this successfully for years. Contact us today at 630-907-0909 for a consultation with one of our attorneys.
