Acting for buyers and sellers in mergers and acquisitions is a significant part of our work. These transactions can cover the purchase or sale of a company or business, as well as multi company groups, with international businesses included.
In every case, there are two key over arching themes:
- covering the various legal and contractual issues that arise to make the deal
effective for our client; and
- making sure that the process itself is organised and efficient.
Our team has substantial experience of these transactions and how to complete them efficiently, effectively and within an agreed budget.
In any transaction it is vital to understand what the key risks are for our client and to make sure these are properly understood and allocated in the contracts. Our preferred method is to work to a continuously updated set of check lists, which we agree with our client.
