Selling Your Business

The most important deal you will ever make

Selling your business will probably be the most important deal you will ever do. It is a complex process, often very stressful, so it is vital that you work with expert advisers who can guide you through the deal and ensure that the best outcome is achieved.

Our Partners have extensive experience of advising corporate and private shareholders on company and business disposals. We work in a very hands-on way to ensure that you can focus on the key decisions you need to make and avoid unnecessary distraction from running your business at a critical time.

Ideally we can invest time with shareholders prior to a sale to understand agendas and priorities, and to work with you to plan for exit. This includes establishing realistic price expectations, identifying prospective purchasers, exploring alternative approaches to sale, and identifying actions to prepare the business for sale with a view to maximising value.

If you would like to discuss a potential sale of a business, perhaps in the context of a confidential meeting, please call Ian Curtis, Ian Aldridge or Steve Bartlett.
