“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Understanding Buy-Sell Agreement Law, Contact Your Austin Buy-Sell Lawyer
Buy-sell agreements add tremendous protection for business owners, helping them provide for the unplanned — life events like divorce, disability or death — that may lead to a business buyout. At the Austin, Texas, law office of John McDuff, I draft binding contracts between co-owners of Texas businesses. These buy-sell agreements control when owners can sell their interest, who can buy their interest and what price must be paid.
Representing Companies Throughout Texas
My clients include small and mid-size companies in Texas or with business interests in Texas. I provide them with high-level, sophisticated legal representation. When I handle a business transaction, I use a well-honed business sense and tax law acumen gained as a licensed CPA (formerly with Price Waterhouse).
As an experienced lawyer, I know that a good buy-sell agreement takes a broad spectrum of matters into account. It accounts for what happens if a co-owner of a business gets divorced. It also accounts for a co-owner’s personal bankruptcy, dictating how that bankruptcy will affect the partnership. Buy-sell agreements should also take into account what happens when one partner needs to buy, but cannot buy, the ownership interest of one of its owners, as well as what tax implications the transaction may incur.
