A large part of the Scott-Harris practice involves representing sellers and buyers of commercial real estate. This includes representing individuals and small business owners in buying or selling their businesses. If you are an individual buying a business, there are many details of the transaction to consider so that you can get the best deal possible, and to protect yourself from liability. If you are a seller, you of course want to maximize your profit. The firm handles its representation of individuals and small businesses in the same way it handles the sale or purchase of larger businesses. The commercial transaction lawyers apply the same dedication to detail, keeping its clients advised during each step of the process and providing counseling and guidance from start to finish of the sometimes daunting process.
The Firm provides over sixty years of experience identifying potential problems and pitfalls that our clients may encounter in connection with the sale and purchase, and advising our clients how best to address those issues. Our representation may involve negotiating the terms of the contract; reviewing the terms and conditions of lender financing; reviewing and insuring title; reviewing surveys; assisting in due diligence investigations and disclosures; preparation and/or review of deeds of conveyance and other closing documents; and conducting and/or coordinating the closing of the transaction.
