New and established businesses face many transactions in conducting day to day operations. Typical transactions include purchasing inventory and assets, buying or selling a business or some or all of its assets, renting commercial space, buying or selling land and facilities, buying or selling an ownership interest in a business, obtaining debt or equity financing, entering into franchise agreements, and many others. A skilled and experienced transactional attorney can help the deal get done and protect a client’s interests during the all phases of the transaction.
The primary role of a transactional attorney is to ensure that the written agreements accurately reflect the agreed upon terms of the transaction. A transactional attorney in most cases collaborates with the other party’s attorney to accomplish this task. However, sometimes one party attempts to take advantage of the other during the drafting process. In that event, a transactional attorney must balance the competing interests of protecting its client while still trying to close the transaction. A transactional attorney must be experienced, diligent, tough when necessary, and smart enough to know when to compromise.
