As a Franchise Attorney I can only say it depends on what the underlying contract(s) that document the sale provide. Were shares of stock sold or just the assets of the business? Was there a security interest in the business provided for and perfected? Taking a business back is only possible under these conditions and requires going through a legal process. Consult with a good business or franchise attorney in your area for specific advice.
