Robert Leavitt, a member of L&G Law Group ’s Corporate Practice Group, participated as a panelist in the Chicago Bar Association’s seminar, Negotiating The Asset Purchase Agreement For The Sale Of A Business. The well-attended seminar was held on February 8, 2007, at the CBA’s headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, and was broadcast live over the internet though the CBA’s website.
The seminar was about how to successfully negotiate an Asset Purchase Agreement for a client who is selling or buying a business. Mr. Leavitt and five other panelists conducted an improvised mock negotiation using a hypothetical sale of a privately held business. In the course of three hours, the seminar highlighted the key issues commonly raised during such a negotiation and practical ways to resolve them.
