If you are buying-out the shares or assets of an existing business or taking on existing business at the same time as buying or taking on the lease of a commercial property, it is essential that you know exactly what you are getting for your money and, perhaps more importantly, what liabilities you will be inheriting.
We can help you to carry out the ‘due diligence’ in order to ensure that no stone remains unturned and that you understand what you are buying.
If you are buying, we will look at the information provided by the seller and help you negotiate the terms of the contract, which should include warranties from the seller in respect of that information.
If you are selling your business, we will help you to robustly deal with the buyer’s enquiries so that you do not expose yourself to unnecessary risk. We will also help you negotiate a contract that does not contain excessive restrictions on you or covenants that may come back to bite you in the future.
If you would like more information or to discuss your requirements, then please contact Peter Warr:
