We can help sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and public limited companies with the sale or purchase of individual assets or businesses as a whole, finding the most effective and beneficial route to take.

Our Expert Commercial Legal Service Focuses On...

  • Buying or selling a business as a going concern
  • Advice on exiting a business
  • Employment issues relating to business sales
  • Financing
  • Joint ventures and partnerships
  • Property issues
  • Sales or purchases of professional practices
