What Should Be Included in a Business Purchase Contract?

May 22, 2020

contractThe Law Office of Robert Eckard is on task helping you handle your business situation. As a Tampa business law firm, we are experienced in handling the details of business contracts. If you are in the middle of a business purchase decision, there are some important things to remember. If you do these things, your contract will be bulletproof.


Have Both Parties Read the Contract

It can be easy just to gloss over legal jargon. Do not do this. Legal jargon can turn into a legal nightmare if you do not know what is in your contract. Make sure that everyone involved has read the contract so they know what the purchase involves. This will save you from a lot of headaches in the future.


Keep it Simple

While still abiding with the law, the business contract should be simple. It should have clear specifications laid out in a way that makes sense. Listing hundreds of pages of information is too exhaustive, and unlikely to be clear if the purchase is ever disputed.


Have Proper Witnesses

Make sure that you have the required number of witnesses per state law. Business attorneys in Tampa FL know how to set this up properly. When you get your contract notarized, ask for a copy of the contract immediately. Keep it with you. Keep the contact information for the witnesses updated in your cellphone’s address files.


Think Carefully About the Purchase

It is good to think twice before purchasing a business. Particularly if you are going deeply into debt to do so. Debt interest payments can sink into your profits, eroding them drastically. Make sure that the business you are purchasing adds to the bottom line.

Drew Patterson is an exceptional, multifaceted attorney. He continually strives to understand the intricacies of our business and produce results. He is highly recommended.

I dealt with Drew on a business lawsuit and he did a hell of a job, being very thorough and winning the case for me. He also recommended me a very good thorough lawyer for a different lawsuit and I'm very pleased with everything that Drew has done not only in the one case but his referrals as well. Would definitely recommend and refer friends to him.

I cannot express enough the immediate efforts of Drew to solve the problem at hand was something you don't see often nowadays. Drew was able to completely prevent something from happening that would have changed the course of my life. If anyone wants a lawyer that makes you feel like you are his number 1 priority hire Drew!!!! Definitely recommending him to anyone that is in need of legal counsel.

Great to work with and Very effective! Many Thanks to attorney Drew Patterson, who handled a business lawsuit for me in a very professional and timely manner resulting in the case being dismissed. In my opinion, Drew was very knowledgeable, asked pertinent questions, explained things easily and understandably, and was a pleasure to work with. He gets it done! If I need an attorney again, Drew will be the first one I call. Additionally, the staff at Robert Eckard & Associates were always courteous and helpful.
