What Is a Letter of Intent?

Talk to a Business Attorney in Montgomery County

Writing a letter of intent (“LOI”) is often necessary for business transactions. A LOI is often the first step in a business transaction and is typically followed by an Asset or Stock Purchase Agreement.

The Functions of a Letter of Intent

The letter of intent is often the first step to establishing a business relationship, acquiring property, or buying, selling, or merging entities. A LOI is typically non-binding as to the key terms of the deal.

These are the functions of a letter intent in business transactions:

  • Establishes an exclusive relationship between the parties
  • Proposes the “high level” terms for the deal
  • Sets forth a timeline for deals and negotiations to occur
  • Sets forth terms for confidentiality so that the entities can exchange information freely

Before entering into any business relationship, long-term or otherwise, it is always advisable to have Montgomery County business attorney for legal counsel.
