Buying or selling a company

“Clients say, ‘From top to bottom, it’s the quality of the work. Around the negotiating table, I’d much rather have them on my side’.”

Chambers UK, 2015

As a business owner you may have reached the stage where you are seeking to realise value from your business via an exit, or to grow by acquiring other businesses.

Any M&A deal that results from these strategic goals will be intensive, for you and your advisers, and may be complicated, both from a legal and commercial perspective. It will also involve some degree of business or strategic risk. We can help you manage these risks.

No two businesses are the same but our experience gives us the knowledge to help both sellers and buyers to understand their long-term objectives. We can provide commercial, pragmatic and appropriately tailored advice to guide you and your business through the M&A process. Our role is ultimately to make the process easier for you, and to ensure that you don’t lose sight of the strategic goals.

We act for both sellers and buyers of owner managed businesses, larger businesses and PLCs, with a particular emphasis on advising intellectual property driven businesses.
