Buy/Sell agreements are often times means to determine how business interest or ownership will transition once a specific set of circumstances have occurred. In most cases, these events include death, disability, divorce, shareholder retirement or forced shareholder separation. Without such an agreement in place these situations can create significant issues for shareholders and even threaten the future security of the business. For this reason, it’s essential to develop a comprehensive buy/sell agreement that addresses several situations under which the orderly transition of business shares is to be sold. Ryan & Wetmore has years of experience working with companies to develop agreements that meet the needs and concerns of the shareholder group. In addition, we also work with companies to review existing buy/sell agreements.
