Consulting / Brokerage with Respect to Buying and Selling Businesses
The process of buying and selling a business is replete with opportunities and also, unfortunately, bombshells. Buyers are typically most interested in placing a desirable target company under contract and proceeding to the due diligence stage in order to confirm/verify the basic assumptions of the transaction, with the right to walk away if those assumptions prove inaccurate. Sellers, on the other hand, are most interested in proceeding to contract quickly and to close the transaction in due course without major interruption to the business. Both buyers and sellers are interested in confidentiality and a tax-efficient transactional structure. No two deals are the same; there are no cookbooks. Due to the influence of Mr. Elias, who has been the principal business/legal advisor in a countless number of buy/sell transactions over the past 25 years, MSCG is well positioned to provide first class services in this area. MSCG is an Illinois-registered Business Broker.
