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
