Buying a Business

Once you have found a business you want to buy, come and speak to us about the next steps.

We can help you find out as much as you need to know about the business before you commit yourself and will ensure you're buying exactly what you think you are.

We can put you in touch with other professionals you may need to assist with your sale and we often work in tandem with our clients other advisors to achieve, for example, the most tax advantageous structure for a business sale.

If you are disposing of a business you'll want to limit your ongoing liability as much as possible and our experienced solicitors can help by minimising your exposure; whether to your buyer under any warranties given in the legal documentation or to third parties, for example landlords if you're disposing of property interests as part of a sale.
