Buying & Selling Businesses

We’ve made it our business to help you buy or sell a business.

Buying or selling a business is a big deal that involves lots of laws, heaps of processes and mountains of paperwork.

We know current market practice in the UK and other major global markets, so we can give you the clear, practical support you need to sail through the complexity of your deal.

Straight-talking: We know our M&A, JVs, SPAs and LBOs, but we won’t bamboozle you with waffly legal-ease. Just straightforward, practical legal advice in plain English.

Fast: When you’re buying or selling a business, time is critical. You set the pace and we match it.

Cost-certainty: Acquiring or disposing of a company can be expensive. We work on a fixed-fee basis and will never surprise you with ‘how-much?!’ bills.

Our lawyers are international city-trained experts who have advised on buying and selling businesses all over the world.

We’ve seen it (almost) all before. Whether your deal is big or small, public or private, we have the international experience and resources to help you every step of the way.
