Legal Answers
Q. Can I share transaction details w/a business broker/consultant without breaching a business contract? and with a lawyer?
A: If the confidentiality clause in your asset purchase agreement does not contain any exceptions for professionals who have a need-to-know the confidential information, or other like language, then sharing the confidential information with your business broker is not advisable as that would be deemed a breach. Typically, confidentiality clauses in asset purchase agreements carve out exceptions for parties who have a need to know the information but not all contracts are the same.
