business sale services
Selling a business can be complex, but with the support of our Company Commercial team it need not be a difficult process. We can advise you on whether it is in your interests to go for a share or asset sale, depending on your tax situation and other issues – as well as drawing up the legal documentation. This includes:
- Outlining all the relevant liabilities
- Employment issues
- Intellectual property
- Guarantees and tax implications that are needed to complete the change in ownership.
We are also well versed in negotiating warranties (which are a guarantee of the company’s previous performance, liabilities and outstanding litigation) to make sure any agreements you enter into are fair and reasonable.
“From my first meeting with Danielle through until completion of our job I felt entirely in knowledgeable and capable hands. I was always kept up-to-date with the progress and milestones we needed to take and Danielle was efficient and diligent in following up with all parties to ensure the process moved along smoothly. Danielle was always available to answer and clarify any queries I had. I’d be very happy to recommend Danielle and her team at Geoffrey Leaver and will of course take any future legal problems I may have directly to Danielle for her expertise.”
