was a panelist at a May 7 seminar on business transition planning, hosted by Key Bank. Cronn discussed legal issues that should be considered in the pre-deal stage in order to enhance and preserve the value of a business to be sold. These issues include preparing for a potential buyer's due diligence inquiry with respect to commercial contracts, related party transactions, intellectual property, legal and regulatory matters, and more. Employee incentives in play during the business sale process should also be considered.
