Clients often highlight to us that buying or selling their businesses can be a really stressful time. Negotiations can move rapidly and be hard pressed, potentially impacting everyone in the business. As well as our legal role, we consider it vital to bring focused advice and support to bear on the agreements, helping to highlight alternatives and their implications.
Our role is to guide you through the acquisition or disposal process, giving clear guidance at each stage of the process and explaining the potential liability you might be accepting in each document.
We can deal on your behalf with negotiations for the terms of sale or purchase, taking into account the advice from your tax advisers. We have great experience in working alongside and across the table from both local and city firms to obtain the best deals for our clients. We will also help you steer a path through the complexities of warranties and terms of sale or purchase.
We will work closely with your funders and arrange for appropriate charges to be agreed to secure any borrowing being used for the transaction. Our expert lawyers have experience in dealing with charges, guarantees, omnibus guarantees within company groups and mortgages over properties.
