What is the process of buying an existing business?
How can we diversify our core business? Is it time to sell the Family Firm?

Come listen to a panel of experts:

Leah Kane and her husband, John, purchased Elecast, Inc., in 2015. Elecast is a well-established aluminum and zinc die caster located in Clarks summit with clients across the country. Leah will share their experience in acquiring the company and answer questions on the process of buying an existing business.

Daniel Haggerty and his  firm, PMJ, represented Elecast in the sale. Daniel worked closely with the Kanes and guided the parties through the due diligence process towards a successful closing.  PMJ has represented sellers of businesses for over 25 years and has been involved in hundreds of successful transactions.

Attorney Steven P. Roth has been engaged in the representation of a number of the region's leading businesses in connection with general corporate representation. Steven is also highly sought after for his counsel and business advice in negotiating complex commercial acquisitions, merger and divestiture transactions, joint ventures and other forms of business combinations.

You will leave the presentation better equipped to answer the big questions about your business and a direction on the resources available.
