Protect Your Business Interests With Buy-Sell Agreements
- Posted at 03/02/2012
Buy-sell agreements, also known as buyout agreements, are arguably some of the most critical documents a business needs. These legal agreements exist between co-owners of a business and dictate what happens to the business and each co-owner’s interest upon the death or departure of one of the owners. Without properly drafted buy-sell agreements, co-owners often end up in court and the business suffers, or worse, is completely destroyed.
A buy-sell agreement is, ideally, signed before the business is started, but it’s never too late to have one created if multiple owners are involved. Having the document drawn up and executed by a legal professional is crucial to the success of the agreement. A qualified attorney will be able to draft an agreement that is fair to everyone involved and clearly defines the instances in which the buy-sell agreement will come in to play.
