Our attorneys represent Purchasers interested in buying a business or an interest in a business. Our experienced lawyers will guide you through what can be a very overwhelming and time-consuming process.  Never purchase a business or an interest in a business without an experienced attorney to advise you on potential liabilities that you may be purchasing at the same time.

Many times when someone is purchasing a business or an interest in a business, the Seller will push for a quick closing that does not allow for proper license and permit transfers.  You may not be able to run the business you are purchasing without the proper license and permit transfers.  The lawyers at LaFountain & Wollman, P.C. will work with Purchasers of a business in verifying that all licenses and permits are in place so that the business can be run as the Purchaser expects immediately after closing.If you are already a businessowner looking to expand your business or change your business and you need some new permits or licenses, our lawyers are ready to assist you in obtaining the same. The attorneys at LaFountain & Wollman, P.C. will work closely with you and the town or city to complete all necessary applications and will attend any necessary meetings with you.
