Buy & Sell Agreements
Although they are commonly confused with commercial real estate purchase and sell agreements, buy and sell agreements do not have anything to do with the sale of real commercial property. Rather, these are legally binding contracts that exist between co-owners of a commercial entity that dictate what will happen if one owner leaves the business or dies.
Also known as “buyout agreements,” buy and sell agreements are among the most important documents when it comes to protecting a business and its owners/shareholders.
In the most basic terms, buy and sell agreements are used to determine:
- When an owner/co-owner can sell their interest in the company
- Who is permitted to buy an owner/co-owner’s interest
- The price at which the interest will be bought/sold
These agreements typically come into play whenever an owner or co-owner wishes to leave a business, must leave a business involuntarily, or leaves a business due to divorce, bankruptcy, or death. Although they are often viewed primarily as a means of protection for the business and its remaining owner(s), buy and sell agreements also protect the rights and interests of those who wish to separate from a business, as well as their dependents and heirs.
All businesses with two or more owners should have a solid buy and sell agreement in place from the outset. The best time to create this agreement is during the initial formation of the business, but buy and sell agreements can be drafted and signed at any time.
At the Patricia S. Bellac Law Firm, we can assist you in all aspects of drafting, reviewing, negotiating, and enforcing buyout agreements, as well as provide personalized legal counsel tailored to your unique situation.
