Justipedia explains Buy-Sell Agreement
Buy-sell agreements serve to make sure that if one partner pulls out of a business, everything is dealt with in an orderly fashion. A partner or a co-owner leaving a business can create significant changes within a company. Buy-sell agreements help to ensure that both the withdrawing party and the remaining party can reach a fair deal as to how much the withdrawing party should be bought out for when they leave. Buy-sell agreements are legally binding.
