What you’ll learn
This lecture will go over the practical and legal process of purchasing a solo practice or doing a “buy-in.” Participants will learn what to expect from the Letter of Intent to Closing Day. We will discuss how to get started, where to find practices, what to avoid and/or look for when finding or buying a practice and decode all the legal terms and documents you will have to sign in order to realize your dream of becoming a practice owner. This lecture will be interactive and will go over the practicalities as well as the legal implications of a practice purchase.
