Buying a business

Buying a business

Buying a business can be an exciting entrepreneurial challenge, but not without risk, which is why we offer proactive and clear legal advice and support throughout the buying process.

We can assist with your offer to purchase, making sure you get off on the right foot, and help you to understand the business you are buying by asking legal due diligence questions and interpreting the seller's responses to increase your knowledge of the business.  We assist with drafting and negotiating the sale agreement and other key documents, finding solutions to help minimise any exposure or risk you are taking on.

Our experienced team will understand how this purchase fits with any existing business and what the opportunity means for you - both if successful or less so - to ensure that you get the advice and professional support you need to make the risky, less so, and the unsure, informed.

Selling your business

Selling a business can be a challenging, emotional, and stressful process, which is why we offer proactive and clear legal advice and support throughout the sale process.

Our experienced team can assist with preparing the business for sale by providing guidance on deal structures and help you to respond to the buyer's legal due diligence requests.  We assist with drafting and negotiating the sale agreement and other key documents, finding solutions to help maximise and protect the value you have created.

We understand that the process can appear overwhelming, particularly if it is your first or only sale.  We aim to understand what the sale means for you to ensure that you get the advice and professional support you need to make the complex, simpler, and the stressful, easier.
