Who drafts the asset purchase agreement?

I have just put my business up for sale and doing some research on what legal documents will be needed in the future.

It depends. In many cases the lawyers representing the seller draft the asset purchase agreement. This is not always the case and at least forty percent (40%) of the deals I have worked on have featured the buyer drafting the asset purchase agreement. Who drafts the agreement may often depend upon who is in a stronger position and/or who has attorneys with the bandwidth to properly support the deal, as envisioned in the relevant term sheet.
