Sell a Company

Our process is designed to generate the highest amount of market exposure without compromising confidentiality. When approaching the sale or transfer of your company, there are various financial, emotional, and legal nuances which should be addressed.


  • Business valuation is important. What is your business worth? How is it valued?
  • Understanding the market is crucial. How do you “present” the opportunity and attract the right buyers?
  • Confidentiality is imperative. How is it maintained throughout your selling process?  
  • Handling the buyer’s objectives can be cumbersome.  What should you expect?
  • Offers produce contracts. How do you procure offers?
  • Contracts produce closings. How do you ensure that a contract closes?
  • Adequate legal protection brings peace of mind. What legal instruments are required to secure your sale?
