In the life cycle of most businesses, there comes a time for owners to realise the benefit of their efforts.
This may be by selling all or part of their business. Our corporate lawyers have helped many owners through the complexities of selling their companies and businesses, whether to a management team through a management buy-out, or by a sale to a trade buyer.
We also regularly act for buyers, for whom an acquisition can be a fast track to growth by comparison with growing organically. They often involve substantial due diligence and complex funding arrangements and our team is well versed in these skills.
Our corporate lawyers take great care in tailoring our approach depending on the experience of our clients. Some have bought (or sold) businesses several times before and are familiar with the processes and issues which arise. For others, it is their first time and it is important for us to be able to guide our clients appropriately.
