When deciding to buy a business, clients are dedicating a significant amount of time, work and expenses into this new endeavour. Selling a business requires a lot of consideration in terms of tax consequences and liability. It is prudent to seek experienced legal assistance when buying or selling a business.

The lawyers at Garton & Harris have helped clients in the Port Coquitlam and Tri-Cities areas buy and sell businesses for decades. We provide clients with practical advice and explanations as to their rights and obligations when undertaking a new business venture. Our priority is to ensure our clients have all the necessary information to successfully establish or sell their business.

Guiding Clients Through Business Purchases

An individual planning to buy a business needs to understand:

  • The purchase agreement
  • the assets of the business
  • What the liabilities are once the business purchase is complete

Garton & Harris has navigated clients through the purchase process since 1975. Our many years of experience has enabled us to provide clients with well-reasoned advice and solutions. We examine commercial purchase agreements and the assets our client is planning to buy. We then carefully walk our clients through the purchase transaction to ensure our clients' business interests are protected at all times.
