Establishing a Buy-Sell Agreement | LifeHealthPro
Working with an attorney, you can help a company establish a buy-sell agreement that sets down in writing what happens to the company's ownership structure in the event a member of the ownership group or a major shareholder dies or becomes disabled.
Without such an agreement in place, a company can be thrown into disarray if one of its owners or key shareholders dies, since the deceased's stake will likely revert to their estate. In that case, the surviving owners' attempts to redeem stock from the estate of the deceased can be a complicated, prolonged, and sometimes contentious process, particularly when it comes to valuing that stock.
