Practice Sale & Acquistion




Practice Acquisitions offers buyer and seller representation, associate buy-in structuring and start-up assistance for veterinary practices. We know that usually the seller is not under any obligation to sell and the buyer is not under any obligation to buy so a transaction will only be completed if it makes sense for both the buyer and the seller. We know how to transition businesses structurally and financially although we don't provide legal or accounting services. Our approach is to arrive at a fair price that maximizes the cash in the owner's pocket but is affordable for the buyer.
