Do you have a business to sell or are you considering buying a share in a business, or perhaps the whole of an existing business? If so, it's extremely important to take quality legal advice at an early stage, to avoid pitfalls and problems later on.

Buying or selling businesses requires a thorough and expert approach to ensure that all aspects of the transaction have been considered, before undertaking such an important investment.

There are many issues to consider, such as:

  • has proper due diligence been carried out;
  • how to value good will; 
  • how to value intellectual property;
  • when shareholders' agreements will be needed;
  • when directors' service level agreements will be required;
  • whether there will be any tax implications;
  • whether there will be a transfer of an office building or other commercial property;
  • whether there are any assets of the business, such as machinery or vehicles, which ought to be separately valued;
  • whether existing contracts will be affected;
  • whether any party should obtain independent legal advice;
  • how to finance a purchase; and 
  • how employees may be affected.
