Earn the valuation that your business deserves. Let us help prepare your business for sale, find the right buyer and negotiate a price that reflects the passion and energy you have put into your business.
Turning a complex project into something simple
Selling your business can be both the most exciting and most challenging time in your career. We're here to help you navigate that.
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 minimal disruption and within your desired time frame.
Maybe you're only just beginning to think about selling the 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 network of private equity investors, so you can also explore whether that is the right route for you.
Or if you've 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.
