A specialist corporate law service for solicitors and accountants

We offer a wide range of legal services to ensure your client's company is protected.

Whether you are dealing with a major company purchase or a small company formation we have the expertise to make sure legal obligations are fulfilled with the minimum fuss and expense.

Company and business purchase

The purchase (or sale) of a Company or business can be extremely demanding.  Small oversights can have disproportionately adverse consequences.  We offer many years of professional experience of such transactions, large and small.
Asking the right questions at the beginning of a business sale/purchase can save your client time, money and risk –
A prospective Buyer should be invited to consider the pros and cons of buying either shares in the target company or the business of the target company.

Buying; - as a “rule of thumb”, it is better for a buyer to buy the business of a target company, rather than the shares in the target company.

Selling; - at an early stage, a prospective Seller should investigate the source of the prospective Buyer’s funds for the purchase.  If substantial funding is to be obtained from a financial institution, this may give rise to significant extra or duplicated investigation of the target company and extra negotiation of documentation.  Both could substantially increase the Seller’s professional costs.
