Buying and selling businesses
Don’t let legal problems hold up the process.
Buying and selling a business or company can be a complex and time-consuming process, not least because in the case of a sale it needs to continue to operate whilst the sale is in progress. Delays and complications can delay the transaction and make things more stressful for you.
By involving us early on, you will enable us to guide you through the transaction from start to finish, and ensure that the whole process is as streamlined and efficient as possible.
We will advise and take appropriate action throughout the due diligence stage, draft and/or negotiate the terms of the sale agreement and address factors such as:
- Customer and supplier contracts
Furthermore, we will liaise throughout with your accountants, tax and other advisers.
We take a realistic approach to these matters and always discuss with you what level of contractual protection is practical and proportionate, bearing in mind the size and complexity of the deal.
What does this mean to you?
Costs are kept to a sensible level whilst ensuring that the risks are suitably managed.
