Buying and Selling a Business

Buying or selling a business can be demanding and stressful.  We have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process.  We know what you should look for in your due diligence and we are here to share this knowledge with you.

Buying a business

Buying a business can be extremely complicated.  Your offer needs to be clear and legally watertight, so that both parties understand their obligations.  We can assist you with the due diligence process to make sure you have all the information you need to make the right decisions for you.

If a significant part of the business price is goodwill we may recommend a restraint of trade clause in the sale and purchase agreement.  If the location is important we will review the lease to make sure the terms are acceptable to you.  We can also check the current state of contracts, with employees, suppliers or service providers.
