Buy Or Sell An Ontario Business: Legal Services In Ajax

Reliable Advice For Entrepreneurs

At Polak McKay & Hawkshaw in Ajax, we represent individuals who want to buy or sell a business in Ontario. Beyond the transactional aspects of the deal, our lawyers thoroughly investigate the business that is the subject of the agreement and the status of the owner and the proposed buyer. The result is an efficient transfer of the enterprise from one party to another.

Due Diligence Of Our Lawyers

Part of our work as your lawyer is to assess the details of the proposed transaction. If you want to purchase a business, we will do due diligence to establish ownership of the business and its legal structure. Whether a business is a partnership, a corporation with shareholders, a sole proprietorship or another entity will affect not only how the sale proceeds, but also the nature of your ongoing responsibilities.

If you are interested in business succession, in other words selling your business, we can help you conclude the transaction, while remaining cognizant of your legal interests. Regardless of which party you are, we establish the subject of the purchase (i.e., the business assets or the company as a whole) and advise on any unique contractual agreements. Purchase of a franchise, for example, has a unique set of legal issues.

We can assist you in the early stages of succession planning or if you have a seller or buyer in mind. Talk to us to learn how we can help you.
