What is a business broker?

Asset Sales

Starting a small business is not easy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), approximately 20% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. Only 25% of new businesses make it to 15 years or more.

While starting a business is harder and arguably more expensive, buying or selling a business is also a very complicated process. You need the right advisor to help you understand value and to help identify unique strengths, opportunities, threats and weaknesses of a business opportunity.

The franchise model is completely different business model. For some experienced business owners, this can feel like starting a new business. A franchise disclosure document is a very important element of this, and we can help you save money by developing it before a lawyer reviews it.

A franchise concept often sounds great until the realization that it's just an idea and what needs to be in place to make it a reality. This process can be daunting and it may require a lot of sacrifice.

Stock Sales

Drafting a Prospectus for a Reg D Offering take a long time to develop, but it's important that it has all the right information and disclaimers. You can save a lot of money by having us draft it before your securities lawyer reviews it.

Raise Equity is exciting! However, it's extremely important to not tell everyone about your opportunity. We will help not only find an investor but also help ensure that they are an Accredited or Sophisticated investor.

Tax Credits need a business plan before an investor can qualify for the tax credit. This involves not only simple qualitative information but also complicated forecasting and budgeting analysis.
