Selling your Veterinary Practice – From Start to Finish

It takes years to build a successful veterinary practice. Selling one can be a daunting task and the process is complex and can be overwhelming. Many veterinarians do not know where to start.  There are several avenues by which a sale can occur:

(1) Sale to another veterinarian; or
(2) Sale to a corporate consolidator.

If you are thinking of selling your veterinary practice, or you are in negotiations to sell, contact Mark Laverdiere to discuss your transaction. We offer clients the option to pay for services in the transaction on an hourly or a flat fee basis.

Attorney Mark Laverdiere is a licensed Maine attorney who has handled the sales of over 50 veterinary hospitals both in Maine and throughout the United States in collaboration with local counsel. Mark is available to consult with you both before or after you have entered into a Letter of Intent with a purchaser, and he frequently works with other local attorneys to coordinate the transaction.

Sellers want to know:

  • How is my practice valued?
  • What will happen to my employees?
  • How is vacation time handled?
  • Will my patients be taken care of?
  • Do I need to sell 100% or are there opportunities that would allow me to retain a stake in the ownership while I am still practicing?

These are all questions that most potential sellers ask and that he sees all the time. At the end of the day, selling the practice you’ve worked years to build should be handled by an attorney who is experienced in this specific area of law. Contact Mark today.

Our Guaranty: Mark always offers a guaranty that he will provide good value for his services.
