Buying and Selling Online Businesses

You might have spoken with people who’ve bought or sold businesses on a hand shake. Even Warren Buffet was reported to have bought Larson-Juhl on a handshake for $223 million back in 2001, but the deal was then documented by lawyers.

The point is, the deal should be easy. If you know what you are doing, it should be straightforward to document the agreement in a way that all the parties understand without the need for further legal interpretation afterward.

The key is getting someone who understands all the components online and can pick up any of the things you might have missed in making the deal.

We chose to focus on working with people who are doing business online. We get excited about helping to protect your business online so that you can focus on growing your business with peace of mind.

We can certainly give you a ‘heads up’ if you want to do something that could put your business at greater risk, like using unauthorised images or copying content, and we’ll give you strategies for managing your risk so that you can still achieve what you want to achieve.

If you need some legal help in an area outside our focus, we’re happy to refer to you any of our trusted contacts for further assistance.
