Our Team handles sales, purchases and mergers of businesses.
Whether your business or the business being acquired is large or small, our team can assist you to prepare, negotiate, manage and complete the transaction.
The level of complexity and issues involved in a business acquisition, merger or disposal transaction depend on a range of factors including the size and location of the business, the relevant industry the business operates in, statutory and other regulatory requirements, the asset classes, employment arrangements, the extent to which the business utilises land and the relevance of intellectual property.
We recommend that you speak to us as the early stages before taking action for the following reasons:
- we can assist with due diligence for both vendors (to ensure your ‘house is in order’ and you maximise the sale price) and purchases (to ensure you know exactly what you are buying and you pay a fair price);
- we can advise you on business structuring and asset protection measures;
- we can assist you with negotiations; and
- we can help you navigate regulatory and banking requirements so that your transaction does not stall.
