How will a lawyer help me?
In a business purchase dispute, a lawyer will look at the issues and obtain all the relevant facts. Whether you are the seller or buyer of a business, we can assist. Careful consideration is given to how the breach of contract or misleading conduct arose and how the law applies in those circumstances.
Once the initial assessment is made and the relevant facts are considered, we can determine the strength of your case and an initial estimate of your loss is quantified.
These types of disputes can be resolved in a variety of ways. Usually settling before you go to court is the best approach, if both parties can work out an appropriate settlement.
A forensic accountant will typically be engaged to assist in establishing your actual financial loss, which can provide leverage to encourage the seller to settle early. If your case is correctly and thoroughly prepared it will make it more difficult for the seller to defend.
