Preparing for a business sale or acquisition

If you are thinking of selling your business, you need to start preparing before taking your company to market so that you have enough time to pull together all the information a potential purchaser will request as part of their due diligence. We can advise you as to the points that will need to be covered to ensure that your business’s legal agreements and commercial framework are in good order and that your sale can proceed as efficiently as possible once a buyer has been found.

If you are considering buying a business, you will need to carry out due diligence to ensure that you have a good understanding of what you will be taking on. If the purchase is of shares, then you will be taking on all of the liabilities of the business, which could include employees, existing contracts and legal claims against the company.

If you are buying the assets, there is still work to be done in ascertaining the title and checking the extent of what you will be receiving.

The purchase agreement will need to be negotiated to ensure that it protects your interests as far as possible and manages the risks associated with the transaction.
