    If you are selling or purchasing an existing business, we can work with you to protect your interests in the transaction all the way through closing.  Business transfer documents are extremely important, because they outline the entire agreement between the parties.  The preparation of these documents requires working directly with your accountant, tax planner, and various governmental agencies to ensure a smooth and orderly transaction.  We work closely with our business and corporate clients to guide them through the process and protect their financial interests.
