Purchase Iconic Restaurant, Nantucket, MA

Murphy PC represented the purchaser of an iconic restaurant in the historic district in Nantucket.  We negotiated and documented the letter of intent, asset purchase agreement and related transaction documents, an assignment, amendment and consent between purchaser, seller and landlord, the intellectual property transfer agreement, including the name, trademark, and menu, and closing documents.

We addressed early access, guaranty indemnification, lien release and closing issues between the purchaser, seller and landlord, and liquor license transfer issues between seller and the liquor licensing board.  We worked with the seller’s counsel, landlord’s counsel, and local licensing counsel to successfully complete this transaction.
