Buying and Selling a Business


Buying an established business comes with many advantages. The outgoing owner will usually have already established a brand and a client or customer base. You may also find it easier to secure finance to grow a business that has a reputation and proven cash flow.

But it takes time and detailed due diligence to get to the point at which you know exactly what you’re buying. It’s a process that we know well; we help clients unpick the complexities of a proposed purchase, advising on risks and liabilities as well as on commercial viability and potential. It’s to make sure that you strike a deal that works for you – whether that’s buying and structuring a business on good terms, or walking away from something that wouldn’t be in your best interests.


Whatever your reason for selling your business, the process of handing over ownership takes careful planning and negotiation. Our team will be alongside you, guiding you through the important issues and helping you get the best return on your efforts.

From statutory compliance, to employee transfers and asset divisions, our lawyers will protect your interests and make the best deal happen with as few complications as possible.
