Buying or selling a business can be one of the most important and exciting transactions that a person or company will ever engage in. In Orange County and Los Angeles County these transactions often lead to litigation. Common forms of litigation deriving from a business purchase or sale include:

  • Misrepresentation or Nondisclosure of a material fact about the business by the seller.
  • Misrepresentation or distortion of the financial results of the business. This can include fraudulent tax returns, overstated sales, bogus customers who disappear shortly after the sale, or understated or omitted expenses in the financial statements provided by the seller to the buyer.
  • Unfair Competition against the business by the former owners in violation of a non-competition agreement.
  • Non-payment of the business purchase price by the buyer of the business.
  • Blame the Seller: Inability of the buyer to operate the business and a "blame the seller" lawsuit.
