How a Business Transaction Can Go Wrong

Transactions are at the heart of business operations. Whether you are selling widgets to the general public, buying investment real estate, or buying and selling companies, transactions are what businesses fundamentally do.

The outcome of these transactions can mean the difference between profitability and financial losses or even the continued existence of a business. As a result, it’s highly advisable for company decision makers to discuss their transaction with an attorney and retain an attorney to represent them in certain large transactions.

Business Transactions Can Go Wrong in a Variety of Ways

There are many ways that a business transaction could go wrong. A customer being unhappy with the purchase of goods or services is a simple and common example of a transaction with a poor outcome. Fortunately, these situations can often be rectified by allowing returns or exchanges or returns or a satisfaction guarantee on services.

On the other end of the spectrum, failing to conduct thorough due diligence in a large merger or acquisition could result in a company selling or purchasing something not in their interest. Some of the specific ways that business transactions can go wrong include:

  • The seller not receiving adequate compensation for the item or service sold
  • The buyer not understanding exactly what is being purchased
  • Delays
  • Misrepresentations regarding financial information or the product being sold
