Time to exit

There are a number of exit options for your business
and now is the time to evaluate your choices

At the point of exit, having a plan for your business as well as for yourself is crucial and our legal experts can help

Exiting may seem far down the line, but from the moment you create your start-up you should be thinking about the different exit routes available to you.

From choosing when and on what terms to leave the business to identifying what assets you may take into a new venture, planning an exit strategy will ensure a smooth succession for your business and the protection of your personal wealth.

Exit strategy

The right exit plan will require careful planning and the legal implications fully considered before taking such an important decision.

  • Exit advice

  • Succession options including Sale, Management Buyout, Employee Ownership, Licensing, IPO & Family legacy

  • Restructuring and disposals

  • Due diligence

  • Consideration of tax implications of chosen exit route

  • Negotiating sale documentation, including contract novation

  • Negotiating warranties and indemnities

  • Review of commercial contracts, including commercial property arrangements

  • Advising on capturing know-how, consultancy arrangements, and restrictive covenants for key individuals

  • Advising on TUPE matters (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations)

A personal plan for your exit
