  • BUYING, SELLING AND MERGING BUSINESSES: The Lawyers at STIM PRO, LLP. can help you with the process of buying or selling a business by preparing or reviewing any term sheets between the parties, carefully drafting and negotiating the sale agreement and all other closing documents, such as promissory notes, security agreements, stock purchase and subscription agreements, loan agreements and mortgages; and by assembling or preparing the owner/shareholder/board of director approvals and consents that are needed for the transaction. We will make sure that all required third party consents (i.e. landlord and contract partners) will be provided.  We can prepare a closing checklist and oversee the execution of all necessary documents.  We could also attend the closing, record security interests, make any necessary adjustments to the purchase price, and provide escrow for the purchase price or the equity covered by a security interest.
