Draft Buy-Sell Agreement
Almost every business with more than one owner should have a buy-sell agreement. A buy-sell agreement is a binding contract between you and your co-owners that controls when an owner can sell his or her interest, who can buy an owner's interest, and what price will be paid for that interest. Usually, a buy-sell agreement also allows the company and its owners to buy out an owner who has stopped working for a company or has died. This eliminates the possibility that active owners will be forced to share profits with an inactive or unsuitable new owner. We will conduct a meeting to discuss this important document.
