Practice Areas

At The Packer Firm we provide legal services centered on the needs of small and mid-sized businesses. We provide services in almost every area of the law that affects their strategy and operations. We emphasize getting to know our client businesses intimately because we understand that legal counsel is only useful if it can be put into action in each client's unique organization and culture.

Buying or Selling a Business

Buying or Investing in a Business

Buying or investing in a business is more complicated than simply writing a check or signing a contract. It requires careful study of the target business to ensure it meets your strategic, operational and financial requirements. We offer a comprehensive suite of transactional legal services to ensure that your transaction goes as smoothly as possible. We advise and guide purchasers through the purchase process - helping them understand their options at every step. We also design and conduct due diligence and prepare term sheets, letters of intent, purchase agreements and ancillary documents to ensure that our clients' new businesses and investments start out on the best footing possible.

Selling a Business

We assist our clients with preparing all or part of their businesses for sale - getting their legal house in order so that they can avoid purchase price reductions by buyers for perceived legal risks. Just as we do with buyers, we also guide sellers through the sale process and prepare and negotiate appropriate documents for the sale.

Finally, we have developed a network of CPAs and other professionals on whom we can call for financial due diligence and other non-legal, deal-related services if necessary.

Please contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation on how we can help you in your decision to purchase, invest in or sell a business.
