Business Client Services
Mergers, Acquisitions and Disposals
Another element of everyday business life is people buying and selling their businesses, from small sole-trader businesses run from home, to large companies with multiple sites. This usually happens by either buying or selling the assets of a business, or if it is a company, buying or selling the shares. These are transfers of going concerns (unlike purchase of an insolvent business), and we work closely with you and your accountants. Such deals often involve the sale of a freehold or leasehold property from which the business trades, and so the commercial and the commercial property teams work closely together.
