Our approach to the successful execution of transactional work combines giving you both pragmatic and commercial advice. Working with a legal team that understand the process makes all the difference for a successful outcome. When it comes to talking about business, we are good listeners, so let's talk.
Commercial Sale and Purchase
By removing the burden of the transaction, our experienced team will assist you on your sale or purchase with a continuous end-to-end solution, carefully managing the transaction process along the way, and we are committed to working within your required timescales.
We can help you with the following:
- heads of terms
- confidentiality and lock out agreements
- legal due diligence
- share purchase/business sale agreement
- tax indemnities
- disclosure letters
- deeds of contribution amongst selling shareholders
- advising on employee issues.
Management Buy-outs and Buy-ins
We advise management teams on their options, so if you are contemplating buying out of a business or buying into a business, we can help with preparing and negotiating bespoke legal documentation to implement this. We have acted for numerous management teams in management buy-outs and buy-ins and understand the issues particular to those transactions.
Companies often face the challenge of needing to reorganise legal structures for a variety of reasons. Whether it be for tax, accounting, or legally driven we are fully versed in the issues involved and providing appropriate solutions with accompanying documentation. We provide you with clear, commercially focused advice on issues such as consulting with employees, obtaining customer approval, dealing with property issues and the restructuring of internal debt or shareholder funds.
Succession Planning and Exit Strategies
With careful planning and preparation, your business can manage the changes that result from a generational transfer of leadership as well as the ongoing changes that occur regularly when key employees leave an organisation. We work with you to identify how you may successfully realise your investment, for the benefit of yourself, your family, your employees or future management. This may involve a management buy-out, a management buy-in, a trade sale, or other ways to return funds to shareholders. By having the right strategies and processes in place we can help you ensure a smooth transition occurs, with as little disruption as possible to your business.
