In addition, the Guide includes checklists and sample provisions as well as tips on advising a client on purchasing a franchise, preparing a business plan, and closing the deal.

Recent court rulings, legislative changes, and IRS releases have significantly impacted the need for guidance in the area of buying or selling a business, including the business succession planning process.
