How a buy-sell agreement can help save your company
Abstract: Any company might go through a change in ownership. Partners may choose to leave the business, die or become disabled. Such occurrences illustrate the need to have an ironclad agreement to ensure all partners are protected. As this article explains, a buy-sell agreement serves this purpose. It helps prevent potential conflicts among remaining owners and with a deceased owner’s family members, and specifies how the ownership change will be funded. Also explained is the difference between a cross-purchase agreement and a redemption agreement.
