One of our core services is advice and negotiation in connection with business transfers.
Our expert advisors have many years of experience and have acted in, and chaired negotiations of, a substantial number of business transfers.
We have in this way built up the necessary legal and commercial insights to handle the complex issues often inherent in these transactions.
Whether acting for the buyer or the seller, our quality advice creates value by ensuring optimal terms for the client, including the best price.
Planning and preparation are paramount to a successful transfer, which is why we always recommend that we become involved at an early stage.
Advice and negotiation relating to business transfers require expert knowledge, incorporating as it may a wide range of legal disciplines. Consequently, our teams bring together lawyers with specialist knowledge of the specific circumstances pertinent to the particular business transfer. Our reach across the legal spectrum enables us to provide top range advice within all disciplines whilst also appreciating the commercial implications. Further, one primarily responsible lawyer is always attached to work in close collaboration with the client.
Typical areas of advice may involve:
- Establishing contact between potential buyers and sellers, as well as sources of finance
- Negotiating terms in relation to the transfer, including price negotiations
- Collaborating with other involved parties, inter alia company brokers,accountants and banks
- Advice on tax issues
- Clarifying issues of employment and labour law
We are always available for a non-binding meeting about advice in connection with the potential transfer of a business.
