We have specialists in many areas, make an appointment today
We can advise companies and individuals on all areas of buying and selling companies and businesses. When acquiring or selling a business, a decision will need to be made as to whether the transaction will be a sale of shares or of the business assets. If you are a sole trader or a partnership, an asset sale is usually the only option. For a company, a sale of shares is usually the most tax efficient for the seller.
Mergers and acquisitions usually bring two or more companies together into one legal entity or as a group of companies.
A merger occurs when two (or more) legal entities come together legally to create a single business entity with a new management and ownership structure. An acquisition is where one business is bought by another.
We can advise on a range of deal structures and provide cost-effective, high quality legal services such as:
- Advise on the legal structure of the deal
- Due diligence process
- Share transfer forms and agreements
- Board Minutes and Shareholder Resolutions
- Articles of Association
