Buy-ins & buy-outs

Undertaking a management buy-out or buy-in can be an exciting if challenging opportunity, and not many executives do it more than once. We provide you with comprehensive and practical guidance for every step of the way, leaving you free to focus on your business.

Negotiating the documentation

The documentation involved in an MBO or MBI is almost always extensive and complex. We negotiate the equity documents with the vendor and your funders, the service agreements for key individuals, and the loan and security documents with the bank.

Tax planning

Sound corporate and personal tax planning is essential, and will materially improve the available financial returns. We offer advice to ensure that rewards from a successful exit (flotation or trade sale) can be maximised.

Sources of finance and appropriate structures

Using our contacts with venture and development capitalists and lending institutions, we help identify sources of finance and advise on financial structures.

Employment transactions

We advise on TUPE, which is a complex set of laws affecting many transactions and contractual arrangements.
