ATLANTA - Dec. 7, 2013 - PRLog -- On December 7, Restaurant Brokers Robin and Eric Gagnon are joined by Grady Thrasher of Thrasher, Liss & Smith, LLC and Patrick Norris of Norris Legal LLC on their restaurant radio show broadcast in the nation’s seventh largest media market.  Listeners can tune in at 12 Noon EST to Atlanta’s AM Talk 920 and Sunday at 1PM on Biz 1190.  The show is also available for immediate download on iTunes.

This week’s show tackles the legal implications of buying a restaurant including when you should hire an attorney in the transaction.  Grady Thrasher says the timing for hiring an attorney, “…depends on if they (the buyer) is using a good broker or not.  If they are using an experienced broker, then that broker has already made sure their documents are compliant with state and local law and covered the bases.”  He goes on to say that “In general you want to contact an attorney early in the process.”

What type of ownership structure should you use to shelter your liability in a transaction? Tune in as Patrick Norris says it’s not all about liability.  In fact, it may have as much to do with sheltering taxes as legal protection.  In his words, you should approach this from both a “tax and liability” perspective.
