Mergers, acquisitions and disposals

Be prepared and feel supported as you buy or sell your business. We offer the right legal advice and solutions to help you achieve your goals. 

Buying other companies and businesses; selling part of your own business; achieving your exit strategy by the trade sale of your own company – these are the most important steps in the development of your business. 

But often directors about to make acquisitions or disposals feel unprepared and unsupported. That is why you need a team of experienced M&A lawyers to guide you through the transaction and bring it to a successful completion.

Our experience

Whether your M&A transaction is an MBO, a bolt-on acquisition, the purchase of a business out of insolvency or the eventual sale of your own business, we will provide you with all the legal support you need. 

We will take the time to thoroughly understand your business so that we can give you timely, straight forward and economical options to solve the issues that you face as any transaction progresses.

Because we act for both buyers and sellers, we understand the challenges from both sides of the table, and we also have extensive experience of international M&A transactions so know how to work effectively across borders.
