Agreements to Buy or Sell an Interest in a Business

Buying or selling an ownership interest in a business is distinctly different than buying or selling an entire business and involves many unique considerations. For example, someone purchasing a minority interest in a business should closely examine the existing company agreements to determine what, if any, minority rights may exist. A minority interest purchaser should also consider whether they are going to receive a preferred return of capital, whether the majority interest holder is being paid a salary, and how voting is structured.
