Mergers & acquisitions
Whether you are merging your organisation with another or thinking about buying a business, we help you accomplish your goals quickly and ensure your risks are properly assessed and managed
You may already have a view of what you want to do, but there might be other options that you should also consider.
Would an asset purchase suit you better than a share purchase? We can provide all the relevant information you need to help you consider the alternatives; and we’ll advise accordingly.
The key is to have someone knowledgeable on your side right from the beginning. A legal adviser with a commercial outlook is a great starting point.
We regularly assist at the initial stages of a transaction – in negotiating heads of terms between the relevant parties – and we employ tried and tested project management techniques to take you through the rest of the deal as painlessly as possible.
Our established associations with banks, accountants and financial advisers can often be helpful in getting your deal done quickly.
During a transaction we will review and advise on:
- the target business’ strengths and weaknesses (due diligence)
- liabilities and risks (indemnities and warranties)
- the deal structure and consideration payable
