Buying or selling a business

Mergers and acquisitions

We understand that starting your own business (whether you start from scratch or buy an existing business) or selling your business can be one of the most demanding things you ever do. We can help you through the process from start to finish in as efficient and painless way as possible. This is our core area of expertise and one in which we have considerable experience.

Your success is just as important to us as it is to you and we recognise that our reputation rests on achieving the best possible outcome for you. We have found that this approach is invariably successful and provides a valuable return on investment and the best possible results on sale.

Recent work

Disposal

We recently acted for a UK based gas company that was selling its business to an international gas company. This was an asset sale with a huge element of due diligence and a raft of disclosure documentation.

Acquisition

We acted for a local estate agency which was acquiring a local competitor. We put in place a lock-in agreement and a confidentiality agreement and then negotiated a share purchase agreement to buy the entire issued share capital of the target that included extensive warranties for the protection of our client.
