business sale or purchase
Our Company Commercial team has helped numerous clients to buy and sell many businesses whether by means of a share sale or a sale of goodwill and assets. Those businesses range from small family run businesses to large international companies. We have experience in all sectors – from traditional manufacturing and hotel chains, to insurance brokers, car retail businesses, software developers and high-tech firms.
We are adept at spotting problems and risks early on in the purchase or sale process which means we can provide you with prompt, clear advice on how to best proceed – with minimum disruption or fuss.
Here are some examples of some recent sales and purchases that we have been involved in:
- Assisting a client in the purchase of a manufacturing business in Vietnam;
- Sale of the majority shareholding in a large multi outlet car retail business;
- Sale of 100% shareholding in a software supply and development company;
- Advising and assisting with the multi-million pound purchase of a family-run construction supply company.
