The Best View of Closely Held Business Transactions: It’s a Process
March 29, 2024

Monique Hayes, a partner for DGIM Law and an adjunct professor for the University of Miami School of Law, says that people often assume that the due diligence process ahead of a business sale or a similar liquidity event is of significantly more importance for the buyer than the seller.

After all, buyers put up a pile of cash or other valuable assets to gain ownership of the business, from which they hope to derive commensurate value over the long term. Sellers, on the other hand, get to walk away from the deal having monetized years or even decades of hard work—perhaps entering retirement or simply moving on to the next big thing.
