Acquisition of another company is an effective way to grow your business. Ensuring a successful transaction is all about the detail. You need to know exactly what you are buying, with no nasty surprises once you have committed to the purchase and protection with relevant indemnities. Poole Alcock’s commercial solicitors will guide you through the negotiating process to ensure that you get the best deal.
If you are buying a business as a going concern, you will want to understand the customer base and secure the future sales pipeline. We are experts at probing that detail and carrying out due diligence investigations. We will work with your accountant to give you a clear understanding of the value and financial state of the business and its assets. We will also draft a carefully worded agreement that protects your investment.
Our employment law team will advise you on the implications of taking on existing staff under the TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)) regulations, while our expert property lawyers will help you to negotiate favourable terms on the acquisition of commercial property.
If you are buying or investing in a business, Poole Alcock’s commercial and business skills will guide you through the process of negotiating, preparing contracts and completing your purchase.
Please submit your information and a member of the Poole Alcock team will respond to you as soon as possible. If you have a quick question, please feel free to call 0800 389 7093.
