Buying a business? Selling a business? Starting a business?

 

Are you thinking of buying, selling, or starting a business? Joel Ankney is a business lawyer that helps people buy, sell, and protect their businesses, commercial real estate, intellectual property, and goods and services. His books give you a head start to learn what your lawyer already knows and can help you identify, understand, and navigate legal issues associated with business acquisitions, mergers, and startups. Their content can ease the stress you experience when doing business deals, help you make better decisions, improve your relationship with your lawyer (lawyer's love educated clients), and potentially decrease your legal fees. Whether you are a seasoned businessperson or new to business, Joel's books are a valuable asset that can be referred to (without being billed) whenever you have a question.

Joel's first book, Here's the Deal: Everything you wish a lawyer would tell you about buying a small business, is a valuable resource for people buying or selling a business and those in the Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA) community. Here's the Deal has been used at the University of Illinois Gies College of Business ETA course and his expertise have been featured on multiple ETA podcasts.

Joel has practiced law in Virginia for over 30 years. He began his career at Hunton & Williams, handled sophisticated mergers and acquisitions at Troutman Sanders, and then opened his own business law firm in 2003.

Joel graduated first in his class from William & Mary Law School, is a member of the Order of the Coif, and was a member of the William & Mary Law Review. His peers have selected him as a Virginia Legal Elite attorney and Top Attorney in Coastal Virginia.

 

Joel's office is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
