We recognise that all Merger and Acquisition transactions are different. We actively project manage our aspects of the acquisition and disposal of businesses giving our clients legal and commercial guidance that is tailored to their specific needs.
There are two different ways to acquire a business. You can either purchase the assets that make up the business, such as equipment, property, stock and goodwill. Alternatively you can buy the shares in the company.
Whichever method you decide to use our Commercial Solicitors can work alongside you and your other professional advisors such as your accountants and insurers to ensure a smooth transaction.
We also understand that it is important to get the right result, at the right time and within budget, also taking into consideration confidentiality agreements and cause as little disruption to the businesses as possible. We offer pre contract advice on share scheme structures, and our Commercial Solicitors are supported by our Property and Employment Departments to enable us to look after any other aspects of the acquisition.
