Whether you are buying or selling a business or shares in a company there are many aspects which you are unlikely to be familiar with, particularly if you haven’t gone through such a process before.

For example in a business/asset transaction you will usually need advice on the following issues:

  • Identification of the assets and liabilities to be sold
  • Payment terms including earn outs and retentions
  • Warranties, indemnities and disclosure
  • VAT considerations
  • Stock valuation provisions
  • TUPE
  • Ongoing supplier and customer contracts
  • IT and IP issues such as websites and trademarks
  • Goodwill protection
  • Apportionments of the price and outgoings
  • Release of assets from lenders’ charges

We also have considerable experience in advising on management buy-outs and buy-ins including venture capital and other corporate finance aspects relating to acquisitions of this kind.
