Buying and Selling a Business/M&A

Equinox knows that the decision to buy or sell a business is often a once in a lifetime experience. We also know that every transaction is unique and has its ups and downs. There’s no “how to” book that will work for all situations, so you must rely on advisors to guide you through the process. Our approach focuses on getting the deal done while ensuring you, whether buyer or seller, are protected from risk. Our services include advising on transaction structure and terms, drafting and negotiating the purchase and sale agreement and related documents, due diligence preparation and review, and managing closing. We are able to provide fixed fee pricing, where appropriate, and keep document turnarounds short so as to keep the transaction moving forward. As a once in a lifetime experience, you want to be sure you’ve got someone on your side, keeping the deal on track, and watching your back. That’s Equinox.

Contract Negotiation and Maintenance

Every relationship a business forms a contract – from landlords to vendors to customers.  It may be written or oral, simple or complex.  What’s important is that the agreement gets your business what it needs from the relationship, documents the key expectations of those involved and address what happens if those expectations aren’t met.  A good contract forms a foundation for a good relationship by setting clear expectations around not only the obvious terms and conditions but the less-obvious ones as well.

Intellectual Property

Every business has intellectual property it has created.  Often these are business names and logos which are the company’ trademarks or content for its brochures, catalogs, or client service materials which are copyrights.  Each of these are proprietary and add value to the business if they are developed and protected with IP management in mind.  As the holder of these IP rights, you are responsible for policing and enforcing your rights; and to do so, you must know what you have and implement an IP management strategy.

Real Estate

Real estate can be an asset of a business or the core of a business model.  Often it’s the single most valuable asset in the business; and it must be properly protected using business entities, contracts, insurance, and proper titling procedures.

Starting a Business

Corporate governance is often far down on the list of important to-dos for business owners and CEOs, yet it’s one of those legal “must dos”.  For owners and management to be shielded from liability, formal governance procedures are required.  Governmental authorities and financial institutions also look for governance procedures to satisfy their due diligence and certification requirements.  To comply, a business should have regular meetings and must maintain certain corporate records.  If your business has multiple owners, an agreement among the owners (such as an Operating Agreement or Shareholder Agreement) is important to describe and document these relationships.

Succession and Transition Planning

Succession and transition planning are critical in all phases of a business’ life cycle.  These plans are not only about the retirement of owners or executives but should also address a catastrophic loss of people or assets of the business and the retention of key employees.  As the name suggests, it’s a planning function that requires ongoing attention and discussion that includes management and governance procedures and contracts, estate planning, and insurance coverage.
