Mergers and Acquisitions

Expert Buy-Side M&A Lawyers

Growing your business through acquisitions or through mergers with competitors or complementary businesses is a major step. We are here to guide you through the process and help you make the right choices when it comes to your business. Leave the formalities to us and let us help you make your business thrive.  

If your target company is based in England and Wales, our dedicated team of mergers and acquisitions lawyers will provide you with coordinated and comprehensive advice from the outset. We will help you to understand whether the acquisition should be made by virtue of share purchase or asset purchase, advise you on the structure of payment of consideration, and set the terms that are right for you. 

Throughout the deal, we will guide you through the legal and financial due diligence process to help you understand what exactly you are acquiring, leaving no stone unturned. We will ensure that your rights and interests are protected in transaction documents and negotiations and will navigate the acquisition all the way through to a successful completion. In addition, our dispute resolution team will be on hand to advise should any post-completion warranty claims arise. 

Our Mission is to Help International Businesses to Succeed in the UK

Our lawyers are based in offices around the UK and we regularly meet our clients Europe-wide. We can service your corporate and M&A needs wherever you may be!  

We are here to help with the management of the costs of the acquisition too. We can often work on the basis of a pre-agreed set fee or capped fee allowing you to budget and proceed with the acquisition with confidence. 

Let us be your trusted legal partner in business. 

Ready to elevate your business through strategic mergers and acquisitions? We are ready to understand your unique needs and help you navigate your merger and acquisition journey.
