Asset & Purchase Agreements


Asset and Stock Purchase Agreements

In the State of New Jersey, asset purchase agreements are a form of business sale in which, instead of buying the stock of a company, a buyer instead purchases specific assets of that company and assumes specific legal and business liabilities. Several unique issues can arise during this type of purchase agreement, including inventory, accounts receivable and payable, asset conditional issues and premises leases which must be addressed.

In a stock purchase agreement, the purchaser buys the shares from the shareholders of the company. Purchasing stock is usually preferable for purchasers, as it helps limit their tax and legal liability issues.

Non-Competition Agreements

During the drafting of an asset or stock purchase agreement, the purchaser often will require a provision prohibiting the seller from competing, either directly or indirectly, with the purchaser once they finalize the deal. While courts in New Jersey mandate such requirements to have reasonableness with regards to the duration and limitations of such agreements, both parties must determine their exact nature.

Asset Purchase and Sale Agreement Drafting Services

Purchasing agreements are legally binding and can either be simple or complicated, depending on the number of assets and any relevant liabilities. The Law Offices of James C. Dezao understands the importance of negotiating an asset purchase and sales agreement.
