Business Sales & Acquisitions

We advise a variety of businesses in buying and selling small to medium size enterprises, sole traders and professional partnerships.

Our approach

Being able to successfully guide a corporate deal requires more than the knowledge of the law. We combine technical excellence with our practical skills. Our advice is tailored to you and dedicated to moving the process forward; with the aim of achieving your desired outcome.

We’ll consider all the factors.

  • Deciding on the structure of your business after the purchase.
  • Protection by the appropriate contractual warranties and indemnities.
  • Drafting the contract for sale of the business, with appropriate clauses.
  • Investigate the business you’re purchasing, and feedback our findings.

If you’re considering a transaction with a business and require professional advice, then please get in touch with our team.

Employment Issues

We’re available to support you with all employment issues; whether from the view of an employer or employee.

If any disagreement is not dealt with correctly, fairly and promptly, however minor it may seem, it can develop into a much bigger problem for everyone involved.

We can help with the below.

  • Employment documentations.
  • Disciplinary.
  • Grievance.
  • Termination of employment.
  • Discrimination.
  • Redundancies.
  • Training.

You should seek legal only once you have exhausted your own attempts at resolving your dispute.

Business Partnerships

You may not have signed any formal contracts, but the act of two or more people setting up a business together and sharing the profit (or loss) is considered as a partnership in legal terms.

This type of agreement means that there’s a division of profits, decision making and how partners leave the partnership. Although formal documentation isn’t required for a partnership, we highly recommend that there is an official agreement drafted to cover assets of your business and your individual roles. You may wish to limit your liability and have a Limited Liability Partnership.

You need a written agreement to avoid the Partnership Act 1890, which dictate the arrangements between the parties. 

A typical agreement will include but is not limited to;

  • The divide of profits and losses
  • Confirmation of who owns what percentage of the business
  • Each parties’ contribution
  • Control over decision making
  • How new partners should be appointed or existing dissolved
  • How disputes should be dealt with
  • Provisions for buy or sell out
  • How capital will be split on dissolution

Business partnership disputes

Whether you have a written agreement or not, we can support you in your dispute.

The common issues we litigate include;

  • Problems with partnership accounts
  • Misrepresentation
  • Negligence
  • Attempts to remove a partner
