What does an owner of a business want in a business transaction?
A business owner wants a transaction that meets his needs to reach an agreement with another business owner, vendor, or customer, such that both parties are satisfied with the agreement.
A business owner wants agreements in transactions that protect him from potential claims from the other side and any third party affected by the agreement.
A business owner wants to complete agreements as soon as possible at an efficient cost.
In a transaction to finance a business, the owner of the business wants a document prepared for such financing to portray the business in its most favorable light as possible while disclosing all material risks for any potential investor.
Who is the Villain?
The frustration and angst of whether an owner will reach a deal with the other side, the cost to make the deal, time to reach a deal, and obtaining deal terms acceptable to the owner are all issues that a business owner needs to share with his attorney to negotiate and draft a written agreement to achieve a good deal for the owner.
