Buying or selling a company or a business can be a complicated affair. There are numerous different issues to be considered, from tax and accounts to employees and assets to business contracts.
We help buyers and sellers to deal with these issues, advising on all aspects of the acquisition and disposal process. The major part of this work typically involves dealing with legal due diligence and the drafting and negotiation of the purchase agreement and disclosure letter. We can assist in raising finance to fund the transaction, whether via banks or private equity.
We also have extensive experience in dealing with mergers, takeovers, joint ventures, management buy-outs and buy-ins, restructuring and group re-organisations. We help businesses to grow by assisting with acquisitions of shares and assets, equity funding and stock exchange listing.
We act in relation to businesses operating in any sector, but have particular experience in the healthcare, social care, engineering, aeronautic, shipping and road transport sectors. We deal with acquisitions and disposals of any size, from simple sole-trader businesses to large groups of companies.
