Business Sales & Disposals.

Corporate Disposals & Business Exits: Legal Preparation for Selling a Business.

Selling a business is a substantial undertaking and one that is going to require professional legal advice to ensure all aspects are covered properly, as well as ensuring your interests are safeguarded at every stage of the transaction.

The legal professionals in Lanyon Bowdler’s corporate team have a wealth of experience over many years in this specialist field and are ready to guide you through the process from start to finish.

We regularly act for buyers and sellers in the sale of businesses and are ideally situated to represent you.

We will discuss your expectations and goals at the outset and throughout the negotiation, right up to the successful conclusion of the transaction.  We will also liaise with other legal representatives and outside agencies and will keep you fully updated, ensuring you understand and are able to follow the procedure. Get in contact today if you would look to find out more.

Our Business Sales and Disposals Expertise

Here at Lanyon Bowdler, we have years of experience in business sales and disposals. Get in touch today and we will be more than happy to help.

How can we help?

We realise that selling a business is an intensive process and can involve carrying out and responding to due diligence investigations. We are aware that some clients may have knowledge and experience of the sale or disposal of a business to varying degrees, but the advice of a legal professional is recommended in all cases and will be necessary to conclude the deal in the correct manner.

Our team covers the full range of legal sectors and our regular involvement with clients – whether they are buying or selling companies, parts of companies, other businesses or assets (intellectual or physical) puts us in the best position to act for you.

This will be a significant step, possibly the biggest you will ever take with your business. It is one you need to ensure is conducted sensitively and thoroughly through a tailor-made solution specifically designed for you.

Our experts at Lanyon Bowdler will provide the appropriate legal advice to ensure the transaction is as straightforward as possible and to make sure you are always kept informed at each stage of the legal process. We will also ensure any agreements entered into will properly protect your interests.

The goal will always be to provide the right legal advice to ensure the sale or disposal of a business is as efficient as possible with minimal disruption to that business.

Lanyon Bowdler has established a network of contacts and good working relationships with other groups and organisations, such as other law firms, financiers and accountants, who are likely to be involved in the transaction.  This means we can act swiftly to help resolve any issues that may arise, including those with property, tax, employment and insolvency.

Our fees for handling your case are extremely competitive with no hidden surprises and will be agreed with you before we proceed on your behalf.
