As a CT Business Lawyer I am often asked by clients what the differences are between a stock purchase and an asset purchase. In a stock purchase transaction, you will be identifying the specific assets of a business that you’re acquiring. These can include the value of the company, intellectual property, accounts receivable, and it’s inventory. As an experienced CT Business Lawyer I advise my clients that it can be useful to use an asset purchase transaction when you want to avoid assuming certain liabilities of the seller. There are also tax advantages in a stock purchase transaction over an asset’s purchase transaction.
