We structure sound buy-sell agreements to avoid LLC, partnership and shareholder disputes
Buy-sell agreements are a good way for a closely held company — partnership, limited-liability company (LLC) or corporation — to control ownership transfers after a shareholder’s death, divorce, bankruptcy, retirement or “cash out” event.
The agreement dictates who can buy the outgoing owner’s portion of the business and establishes a fair price. Using buy-sell agreements to limit the number and type of members or shareholders can prevent the introduction of new owners, and keep ownership of a family business within the family.
Drafting a written agreement that spells out what will happen can save time, money and hurt feelings when change arrives. It can also provide valuable business continuity.
Most buy-sell agreements presume cash is available to affect the purchase. LLCs, corporations and partnerships often use life insurance policies to underpin buy-sell agreements — in a cross-purchase agreement, one owner insures the life of the other. Should the other owner die, the death benefit can fund purchasing the share.
Breach of contracts
A breach of contract occurs when one party to a written or oral agreement fails to honor the contract. In Utah, statutes of limitations allow four years for the filing of charges relating to breached oral contracts, or six years for breached written contracts.
