Summer is almost here and a lot of companies will start considering using summer interns. This can be a great learning experience for students who want to see what actually goes on behind the scenes of business before they graduate. Actually, interns are available to you all year, not just the summer, but the employer needs to know the rules established by the Department of Labor (DOL).

Richard GalinYou are selling your company for cash – up front.  The buyer is doing due diligence, but you just care about signing the contract and getting the money, so no due diligence by you.  So why does your lawyer spend so much time and send you a big bill?  Here are some things your lawyer might handle in a “simple” deal like this:

1) Representations And Warranties (R&Ws) – Besides the buyer’s due diligence on you before signing the contract, expect the buyer to request loads of R&Ws in the contract by you about your company.  (“As is” deals, with no R&Ws, are few and far between, and they generally bring lower prices because of the risks to the buyer.)  Depending on how cautious – or picky – the buyer is, R&Ws can be maddeningly long and detailed – and they can be a trap!  Long after the deal closes, if the buyer finds inaccuracies in your R&Ws, he might come after you and demand some money back.  This can get sticky, as there could be arguments about whether the buyer was really damaged by the inaccuracies or whether they were just harmless errors.  But you don’t want to wind up in that kind of fight, even if you win (in or out of court).
