We're about to put the company up for sale and I'm looking for advice on the following situation as well as recommendations for a good lawyer to help us with all the paperwork. Here's the scoop:
We're putting the company up for sale and as part of this we have agreed to buy out our 3rd co-founder early. He owns a single digit % of the company and we've already agreed on a price for his shares. We're doing this early as he wants to exit sooner than it will take us to negotiate a sale.
I'm looking for a) recommendations on a good lawyer to help us with the buyout and b) any advice and/or war stories you have for putting your company up for sale.
