Sales & Purchases

Our specialists know that getting the structure right for acquisitions and disposals is partly legal, partly tax and accounting, and definitely a commercial call.

We act for existing companies and business owners looking to develop their business, to expand or to diversify by acquisition. Additionally, we help sellers of businesses, who are often motivated by wanting to realise value of an organisation.

Our expertise includes:

Acting for overseas buyers and sellers
Key focus on project management
Superb track record of on average 80 acquisitions / disposals each year
Working with you during the due diligence process to identify the real areas of concern and risk

            We take the time to discuss what clients want to get from the sale / purchase – what’s your driver and what are your concerns but most importantly, how can we help to minimise risk and maximise your return.

We’re not afraid of telling you when there is an unsurmountable problem or risk as we will suggest innovative proposals to overcome these problems.

Our cross-company expertise is enviable. A business or company sale / purchase involves accounts, tax, real estate, business contracts, intellectual property, information technology, human resources and other issues – you need a team that can provide all the services you need. Don’t forget the process of integration – commercial and legal. Buyers often underestimate the time and work involved.
