Buying and selling a business

Maximising the selling price of your business

Business solicitors – our approach

Lots of businesses who come to me and have agreed a sale of their business think – dead simple, where do I sign on the dotted line? In my experience, when you’re acting for the seller of the business, the purchaser or the solicitor acting for the purchaser will find any reason whatsoever to knock you down on the purchasing price.

And as a seller you’re looking to maximise that sale price and the money that comes into your hand when you’ve completed the deal. So what you need to do is make sure that everything is in place before you sell the business, and that’s where we can help with drafting the contracts, making sure all the employees are in place, make sure you’ve got the lease with good terms and give the purchaser no reason whatsoever to knock you down on that price.
