Buying a Small Business

Purchasing an established small business is a great way to be a business owner while minimizing some of the risks associated with a startup. A company with an established product, client base, and brand name will allow you to jump right into operations; no need to create the product or find loyal clients.

However, before buying an ongoing business, it is incredibly important to properly research the business. Proper due diligence is the key to a successful transaction. I'm here to help. My services to buyers of small business include:

  • Initial consultation
  • Letter of intent
  • Detailed explanation of purchase agreement
  • Review and negotiation purchase agreement
  • Research on the business
  • Lien and judgment check (additional fees may apply)
  • Preparation and review of all closing documents
  • Representation of buyer at closing

Great Lawyer - wonderful advisor: I recently started a small tech business for which I hired Regina, and wish to remain a client, to help me build my small business. She provides honest advice and a convenient platform to make payments and upload/receive important documents. Very knowledgeable and intelligent practitioner.
I used Regina's service to Establish LLC and to draw purchase agreement. I am very happy with her service. She is responsive, returns phone calls and knowledgeable. The pricing was reasonable and there was no surprises. I was opening a business bank account and was missing some info. I called Regina and left her a message that I am at the bank and need to talk to her asap. She returned my call within a minutes and provided me with what I was looking for. This sealed the deal for me. How many attorney do that???

I found Regina's website when I was looking for a service to do my LLC publication requirements. At the same time, I had found a retail space that I wished to move on quickly. Yes, I found my lawyer online (a step above the yellow pages) and luck was on my side that she was excellent! I've been through several attorneys over the years and there's a reason I didn't want to deal with any of them for my current project. I'd definitely use Regina again. She was thorough with and responsive to both myself and the landlord.
