We advise the buyers and sellers of companies and businesses, across a variety of sectors and at all stages of the sale and purchase process.
When acting for buyers, we provide a thorough legal due diligence, to help identify potential issues and to protect our clients against inheriting liabilities down the road. When acting for sellers, we can establish data rooms and assist with the disclosure process to ensure a smooth process.
In advising on the terms of the key transaction documents, we are commercially minded and pragmatic, with a real focus on the key issues that matter to our clients. We have a track record of getting deals done, with the ability to stand a firm stand in negotiations when needed but also to suggest solutions and compromises when appropriate and necessary to make sure that the transaction progresses.
We have the in-house expertise to advise on tax covenants and tax warranties, which are often a key area on share sales.
