Selling your Business

Selling your business can be both the most exciting and most challenging time in your career. We’re here to help you navigate that.

Selling your Business?

The decision to sell a business is never taken lightly, and support from outside counsel can be invaluable.  A robust exit strategy ensures you realise your end goal with the minimum of disturbance to your business and within your desired timeframe.

Perhaps you are only just beginning to think about reducing your involvement in your business? We will help you identify the options available and plan before ultimately finding the best buyer, whether that’s a competitor, existing management team or family member. We have a strong network of private equity investors, so you can explore whether that is the right route for you.

Identified a buyer? We’ll help you effectively showcase the opportunity, then negotiate the best price and deal structure. As well as capital gains tax planning and maximising the available reliefs, our involvement extends beyond the sale to inheritance tax planning so you protect the value you created.

Our job is to ensure you remain in control throughout the process, adapting and tailoring our support to suit your end goals.

How we can help:

  • Full or partial trade sales
  • Management buy outs or buy-ins
  • Vendor initiated MBOs
  • Private Equity backed buy outs
  • Listing on public exchange
  • Succession strategy
  • Transaction advisory
  • Refinancing
  • Management incentive schemes
  • Demergers and restructuring
  • Capital gains tax planning
  • Inheritance tax planning
