Practice/Industry Group Overview

Fineman Krekstein & Harris attorneys represent purchasers and sellers in the evaluation, structuring, financing, negotiation and documentation of all phases of the purchase or sale and other disposition of businesses and their assets.  Whether such transactions take the form of a statutory merger, the purchase or sale of stock or assets, or the creation of new entities through joint ventures or other strategic alliances, Fineman Krekstein & Harris attorneys bring experience both to the task of drafting the necessary legal documents, and to the business decisions each transaction requires.  We carefully consider the tax consequences of each transaction in order to best structure the transaction, and we offer advice as to the choice of business entity used to consummate a transaction by analyzing our clients’ long-term goals.

Representative Matters

  • When a C corporation found a buyer for its assets at a favorable price, it was faced with the prospect of paying two federal income taxes on the gain from the sale.  Fineman Krekstein & Harris attorneys were able to structure the transaction through an intermediary organization to avoid one of those taxes.
     
  • Firm attorneys have recently completed the sale on behalf of the sellers of a Bucks County insurance agency and in a separate transaction of a nursing home in Chester County.
     
  • Firm attorneys, representing the purchaser, successfully negotiated and documented the purchase and financing of a construction company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
