Selling Your Business

Selling your business – especially when still engaged in its day to day running – can be a stressful time. The sums of money involved may be significant, the process has a language all of its own and there will be a whole host of legal documents to work through.

Finding the time to manage the sale process, alongside your existing commitments, will be absolutely critical - which is why we have put together this guide to give you a feel for what is involved and how we (along with your other advisers) can help smooth the transaction.

We think our guide covers the key issues but, if you can’t find the information you need, we are only a phone call away.

Key Contacts

 

Selling a business will give rise to a number of legal (and non-legal) considerations.

On the legal side, depending on the nature of the transaction, you may need input on some or all of the following areas:

  • corporate
  • employment
  • property
  • finance
  • commercial contracts
  • intellectual property

A member of our corporate team is likely to lead on the transaction and provide you with a single point of contact, but the strength of our offering lies in the ability to provide a full service solution for all of your legal needs.
