As an experienced business acquisition lawyer, who has been involved in a multitude of business acquisitions, representing both sellers and buyers, I cannot stress to you the importance of retaining the appropriate legal counsel very early in the acquisition process. Far too frequently, business purchasers wait far too long before bringing in an experienced lawyer and this delay has major financial and legal ramifications to the purchasing party, whether it is an asset purchase or share purchase.

The initial costs associated with getting the appropriate lawyer involved early on are almost always quickly overtaken by the cost savings that are realized from their early involvement - whether its purging the acquisition of unnecessary components or unwanted liabilities, reducing the purchase price or how it is paid, or scuttling the deal in its entirety - the right lawyer can make a monumental difference when purchasing a business (see commentary on Due Diligence).

To understand the value of retaining the services of an experienced acquisition lawyer when buying a business, contact lawyer Christopher R. Neufeld at or 403-400-4092. There is far too much at stake to not get the appropriate legal counsel and thereby make wiser and more effective decisions when purchasing a business.
