Buying or Selling your business
If you’re looking to buy or sell a business, it’s important to ensure that you’re absolutely clear about what you will get out of the transaction. The right legal advice can help you achieve this and give you lasting peace of mind once the purchase or sale has been concluded.
Our specialist team provides expert legal advice in different languages to clients on a wide range of legal matters, including commercial law and the buying and selling of businesses.
What legal advice do I need if I’m buying or selling a business?
If you’ve ever moved house, you’ll know that a lot of information has to be provided to the buyer. That information must be honest and accurate, because any inaccuracies can cause significant problems further down the line.
When it comes to buying or selling a business though, the process is significantly more complex even than moving house. When you come to buy or sell a business you soon realise that there any many things you need to consider, such as:
- Which premises, equipment and fixtures and fittings are included?
- How many employees does the business have and which will be staying?
- What are the finances of the business including any loans or debts?
- What contracts does the business have with clients, suppliers or intermediaries
These factors alone can call for significant due diligence in the buying or selling process. All of these and many other factors need to be thoroughly and accurately documented before the sale or purchase concludes.
There is no shortcut to this process and getting professional legal advice from experienced specialists in business and commercial law will help you ensure that you get the fine details right so that the transaction turns out as you want it to.
