Buying and Selling a Business

Providing legal support to anyone buying or selling a business is one of the cornerstones of our service and we are available to help you in this area.

Buying or selling a business can be a very complex process so quality legal representation is vital. We have dealt with hundreds of business sales and acquisitions across a multitude of sectors, for clients in the UK and internationally, and are here to ensure the legal formalities are properly completed and that your interests are protected at all stages. We also have tax and accounting experts who will look at the financial issues in regards to the process.

We always consider the future when dealing with any business sale or acquisition, meaning we will look to anticipate and prevent any problems that may occur further down the line.

If you are buying a business then we will undertake a full investigation into the company in question, ensuring the price you are due to pay is a fair one and that you are aware of any assets that may be excluded, as well as liabilities, future profitability and any obligations you will take on as owner.

Our services in this field are worked out on a set fee basis, so you can be comfortable in the knowledge that all our work will be covered by one price.
