Our expertise and knowledge is based on years of experience advising on complex transactions, negotiating deals and providing business support.
I want to sell my business or buy another
We have the experience of corporate transactions rarely found outside of large city centre practices. If you haven’t yet found a buyer, we can help you to identify who would be best to approach. We can then produce comprehensive heads of terms, assist in due diligence enquiries, document negotiations and funding requirements, to ensure that you achieve a successful outcome.
We also offer expert advice and guidance on assets and share acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, management buy-ins and buy-outs and private equity and venture capital.
I want to restructure my business
Your corporate structure can be key to mitigate your business risk, but the world of group corporate structures can also be daunting. We can help you review your risks and targets in order to design and implement a corporate structure that works, including; redemption/buy-back of shares, reduction of share capital, reorganisations and share schemes and incentives.
You may also be interested in tax efficient share schemes to incentivise employees; Enterprise management incentives (EMI), company share option plans (CSOP), save as you earn options (SAYE) or share incentive plans (SIP). We can help you to decide those that are appropriate and then implement them for you.
