Buy-sell agreements are among the most common yet least understood business agreements and many are destined to fail to operate like the owners expect. Many, in fact, are ticking time bombs, just waiting for a trigger event to explode. If you are a business owner or are an adviser to business owners, this book is designed for you, providing a road map for business owners to develop or improve their buy-sell agreement.
