We act for business owners on all aspects of the sale process: beginning with preparing the business for sale in order to maximise value and continuing through all stages of the sale process itself. Our focus, as always, is on achieving the best results for our clients.
With support from our private client and tax teams, we can also look beyond the sale process and advise business sellers at an early stage on wealth protection strategies based on an understanding of their priorities going forwards.
On the acquisition side we act for both one-off and occasional business buyers, as well as for buy-and-build platforms, on the roll out of their acquisition strategies. And we also advise on management buy-ins and buy-outs, including providing specialist advice to management teams.
