Acquiring or selling a business is a complex process with tight timescales and deal-breaking barriers at every stage. Our corporate team has completed hundreds of deals (of all sizes), by rolling up our sleeves and getting under the skin of each transaction to ensure we achieve the desired outcome for our clients. Our clients range from the small business around the corner to international firms trading across jurisdictions, and each transaction receives our full focus.
When choosing a legal partner to support you in corporate transaction, there’s no substitute for experience. We have one of the largest and most experienced corporate finance teams in the West Midlands, and we’ve acted for businesses in nearly every business sector, including healthcare, manufacturing, technology and retail businesses.
We can help with management buyouts, acquisitions and disposals of both private and public companies, as well as getting your business ready for sale. We also specialise in joint ventures and collaboration arrangements, allowing businesses to combine their expertise and pool their resources and access new markets. As part of the transaction, we complete full due diligence for you and can also assist with post-acquisition issues, such as resource streamlining and registering intellectual property rights.
No matter the transaction, you need a team that understands your business, where it’s been and where you’re going. Our team of corporate lawyers work closely with you to not only find out what you want to achieve, but also to help you understand any risks that may arise and ensure you’re prepared and protected.
Our corporate finance experts also work with companies that want to make a partial sale. Perhaps you want to retain shareholding but sell your business as a going concern, or you need assistance with pre-sale restructuring to remove assets before a sale – no matter how complex the transaction is, we are on hand to make any disposal smooth and hiccup-free.
