Mergers & acquisitions

Whether you’re buying or selling a business, a company - or an interest in a company - it’s essential that you know the correct value of what’s at stake. After all, without the right processes in place it’s easy to give away assets or acquire liabilities that you didn’t know you had. And that can have an impact on your profitability for a long time to come. 

If you’re involved in a merger or acquisition, our M&A team will guide you through the big picture as well as the detail. We’ll help you understand exactly what you’re acquiring or selling and where the risks and opportunities lie. 

That way you’ll know what to look out for and where you have leverage.

And you’ll give also yourself the best chance of getting the very best deal.

 

We can:

  • Advise you about setting up a joint venture and preparing the necessary transaction document.

  • Draft a non-binding offer that protects confidentiality and sets the wheels in motion for the merger or acquisition process.

  • Advise you on M&A strategies that will help your business grow or let you sell assets for the best price.

  • Conduct a due diligence on a business or company you’re looking to acquire or merge with so that you know exactly what you’re buying and where the risks and opportunities lie.

  • Advise you on the right corporate structure for acquiring a new business or company or merging with it, so that the deal is tax-effective and your interests stay protected.

  • Draft a sale agreement that protects your interests while being commercially acceptable to everyone involved.

  • Help you engineer a management buyout that gives you great value and the business the best chance of succeeding.

  • Advise you on a strategy for taking a private company to IPO.

  • Advise you on a post-merger or acquisition strategy that will let you hit the ground running.
