Areas of Expertise

Buying a business is a process.  It starts with a strategic decision to buy or merge, rather than to grow organically.  Once that decision is made, the key is then identifying what, precisely you are looking for.  Fit is everything.

Once the target has been identified, momentum builds.  It’s during this period that your commercial objectives need to remain front of mind.  Due diligence is not just about price and managing risk.  Coupled with negotiation, the process can be an invaluable way to assess fit and build trust.

And although the sale agreement marks the end of the sale process, it is merely the beginning of a new chapter.  The terms of your agreement obviously need to protect your risk as well as they can, but it is equally important that they set clear expectations about what will happen after the sale is completed.

We take a holistic approach to business purchases.  It’s not just documenting a transaction.  It’s about doing everything possible to ensure your investment is a sound one.

Services we provide in this area include:

  • Referrals to corporate advisors who can assist in valuing businesses, identifying and approaching targets
  • Structuring and re-structuring advice
  • Heads of agreement
  • Due diligence
  • Contract drafting and negotiation
  • Business sale agreements and share sale agreements
  • Escrow services
  • Shareholders agreements
