Business Transactions

We have extensive experience and a proven track record in assisting small and medium-sized businesses with the acquisition or sale of commercial interests and assets, such as:

 

  • businesses (including franchises)

  • plant and equipment and other assets

  • shares

  • units

  • interests in joint ventures or partnerships.

 

Adopting a flexible, open-minded approach, we focus on providing practical, commercial solutions to assist each client to achieve their desired outcome.

Our services span all stages of the transaction, including:

  • The preparation and negotiation of Non-Disclosure Agreements.

  • Structuring for sale (e.g. to make the asset/equity more attractive to a purchaser and to add value to the asset/equity and therefore the price).

  • Due diligence, whether in making investigations on behalf of a prospective buyer or preparing for due diligence on behalf of a prospective seller, e.g. setting up a data room and related procedures.

  • Drafting and/or reviewing sale documentation.

  • Assisting with negotiations (particularly warranty and indemnity provisions).

  • Assisting with completion of the sale and  post-completion issues.
