Known as a “business prenup,” buy-sell agreements lay the groundwork for when a business partner leaves a business. Generally the agreements will lay out whether the business share of the leaving party is offered up for sale in the market, sold back to the business entity, or sold back to the remaining partners.
These buyout agreements are very common with partnerships, close corporations, and sole proprietorships. A strong buy-sell agreement from the start provides stability when a partner leaves a business and will help prevent a litigious situation down the road.
