Our experienced team advises businesses on a wide range of corporate legal services from company formation and fund raising to restructuring and sale.

Company formation

We can assist with the incorporation of a range of different business structures ranging from private companies limited by shares or guarantee, to community interest companies, to limited liability partnerships.  We also provide support in setting up your company or LLP, preparing and maintaining company registers and submitting annual filings.

Mergers and acquisitions

We have extensive experience in buying and selling businesses of all sizes and can work with you to provide support and guidance on the following:

  • Pre-sale business health checks
  • Agreeing commercial aspects of deals
  • Implementation of deals by coordinating a due diligence process
  • Drafting acquisition documents

Following an acquisition, we can implement a post-acquisition plan by incorporating the new business into an existing group structure as well as harmonising its legal functions.

If it’s a business sale, we can help structure the funds received in a tax efficient manner.

Restructuring and company sale

We regularly advise organisations on their restructuring options and can advise as part of sale preparations, on dividing the company amongst family or to protect your family’s inheritance by moving to a more tax-efficient structure.

Contact the Corporate team

Please provide a few details about your enquiry in this form and someone in our corporate team will get back to you as soon as they can.

At the start of 2023 we decided to plan a retirement exit-strategy that resulted in selling our SME business to another company in similar field. Dealing with a company that handled all the legal requirements was an enormous benefit as it meant the coordination happened without our direct, regular involvement.

Over the period the contract was completed all personnel kept us fully informed and guided us through the process, at times challenging due to factors outside our control, with professionalism, patience, and perseverance to complete the acquisition.
