Acquisitions & disposals

Buying or selling a business can be a stressful process. We can help take the pressure off.

Buying or selling a business can be a complex task and there are a lot of things to consider. Not only that, it can take up a lot of your time. You’ll need to make sure that the terms you agree meet your needs and expectations

So it makes sense to enlist the help of a team, to work alongside you and take care of all the legal formalities, taking some of the pressure off you.

We have a team of specialist, highly experienced commercial lawyers who have worked on transactions in many different sectors. We’ll work to make sure that everything goes smoothly, but we also know that problems can arise. When they do, we’ll use our experience to come up with creative possible solutions to help move things forward.

So we’re well placed to provide you with both practical as well as legal support.

We can assist with:

  • Initial discussions and Heads of Terms
  • Due diligence
  • Commercial property
  • Employment and pensions
  • Risk management
  • Acquisitions and disposal contracts

We can help you throughout the process, from the initial discussions right through to the completion of the sale.
