Business Sales

Your need...

You may be an owner-managed business or partnership looking to sell your whole business or a shareholder selling all or just some of your shares.

You may also be selling or leasing your business premises as part of the sale.

Alternatively you may be partners or shareholders in a business wanting advice as to how to terminate your partnership or shareholder’s agreement as part of any sale.

  • Selling property as part of a business sale (leasehold or freehold).
  • Restructuring the company/business as part of the transaction.
