Buying and Selling a Business or Shares in a Business      

Whether you’re looking to buy, sell or develop your business, we can offer you advice on a wide range of legal and property aspects: from asset purchases and share sales, through to development programmes and investment projects.

Property Sales and Management

Buying, selling or leasing your premises can be as complex – getting it right is important, and we’re here to help smooth the way and get you the best possible results. We can carry out contract negotiations and conveyancing, help you navigate the planning process and meet local authority requirements, and even advise on funding and security.

Business Creation

We can give your new enterprise a rock-solid legal foundation. This will leave you free to get on with your day-to-day business, safe in the knowledge that, should any disputes or difficulties arise in the future, you’ve got the legal infrastructure and support in place to resolve them.

Negotiation Support

We can use our experience to negotiate contract terms on your behalf and deal with third-parties such as architects, financiers and surveyors. Naturally, we can also draft the necessary legal documentation.

Buying and Selling a Business or Shares in a Business

Whether you’re buying or selling a business, or shares in a business, there is inevitably paperwork involved. We take care of all aspects of this – from reviewing and compiling due diligence reports through to negotiating warranties and disclosures.
