The Importance of Owner Transition When Selling a Business

By Private Practice Transitions on Aug 25, 2022 1:30:01 PM

Selling a business is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken for granted. Once the sale is made, you must go through a phase known as the transition period (or the handover period).

What is Due Diligence and What to Expect

By Private Practice Transitions on Apr 4, 2022 11:00:00 AM

When purchasing an established business, it is important to evaluate “all of the things” that pertain to the business. This includes not only the financial details of the business to determine both the valuation and what your return on investment might be, but what risks may be associated with purchasing the business. You may also need to look at key staff members, contracts, and referral sources, among other things. So, what is this process called? Due Diligence. Essentially, think of due diligence as everything you will consider prior to signing a binding contract to purchase a business.
