Purchase or Sale of Business. North Sound Law, P.S. can assist with negotiations of the sale terms and plans for transition and non-competition after the sale.

Closings & Escrow. I act as closing agent to process the closing of business transactions, like the purchase or sale of assets or stock. This function involves implementing an agreement as a neutral agent for both parties. Each transaction is unique, and it helps to have an escrow agent who can quickly manage problems that may arise.

Sales Contracts. All businesses sell some product or some service. It is a good idea to develop standard forms for defining the terms of your deal with your customers. There is enough risk in operating a business; the owner should at least take steps to manage the usual sorts of problems that can arise by having solid sales agreements and procedures.

License & Franchise Agreements.
Some businesses use products, services or procedures owned by others, and some agreement must be reached to enable the business to rely on its continuing access to the items in question. License or franchise agreements usually address such terms and conditions.

Employment Agreements.
Key employees, or co-owners, may need to specify long term arrangements with the business to keep them working and happy. It protects the interests of both parties to set up clear provisions so that everyone's expectations can be protected.
