News : Commercial Events

Are you thinking of buying or selling a business?

Whether you’re looking to grow your business by acquisition, or considering your eventual exit from your business, it’s never too early to begin your planning.

Luke Pritchard, from our Corporate and Commercial team, will run you through the key legal considerations when buying or selling a business, including:

  • How to structure the transaction.
  • What to look out for in due diligence.
  • The use of warranties and indemnities to protect your position.
  • Restrictive covenants – can a seller be prevented from setting up in competition?

Christian Goulding, Head of Corporate Finance at Howard Worth Accountants and Business Advisers will discuss what you should look out for when buying a business and also how to maximise a sale price when selling a business including:

  • Profitability – preserving it and understanding how key customers and contracts can be.
  • Market positioning – how this can affect a buyers perception of your business and what you can do about it.
  • How to prepare your business for sale – what steps you can take now to prepare for this.
