Acquisitions & disposals

The lawyers have pro-active, deal-focused attitudes and really work as part of our team.

Chambers UK

The acquisition or disposal of a business can be a fraught time for the parties involved.  However, by identifying your commercial priorities and concerns at the start of the process, we will provide sound legal advice that never loses sight of your objectives, avoids protracted negotiations and seeks to bring about a swift completion of the transaction.

Understanding priorities

We know that the priorities of a seller are very different to those of a buyer.  Buyers are focused on establishing exactly what it is they are acquiring (both the assets and the liabilities), and verifying the value of the acquisition. We understand the need to balance thorough due diligence into potential risks with ensuring there is no delay in completing the transaction successfully.  As a seller, your aim will be to achieve an optimal tax structure to maximise your return whilst minimising your liability for warranties claims.

Our expertise is in high end complex matters, both domestic and international, and we are consistently ranked by the legal directories as one of the top teams for mid-market mergers and acquisitions.  We advise global corporates, private equity funds, both AIM and Official Listed companies (and Nomads) as well as entrepreneurial owner/managed businesses, across a broad range of sectors.
