Mergers & Acquisitions

We have extensive experience in acting for both buyers and sellers of private limited companies, large and small, across a broad range of sectors.

 

Our specialist commercial lawyers seek to ensure the legal implications of any deal are considered in line with the commercial factors so our clients can continuously consider the merits of the deal during every stage of the process.

 

Although the process is not without risk, a successful acquisition provides a good opportunity to acquire key assets such as personnel, contracts, client lists, alternate business strategies and brand/IP rights.

 

To minimise the risks of an abortive acquisition, careful planning and realistic timescales and deadlines are paramount. The earlier we are involved to help structure the deal and expedite the due diligence process, the better chance a deal will complete on time.
