There are many factors to consider when selling or purchasing a business.  


Our role in this process is to ensure your financial position is best protected. Have you considered the related assets that are being transferred, including property, equipment, fixtures, fittings, stock, any rights to use any business names and also all the associated liabilities? 


Our team of lawyers can work directly with creditors (people or businesses that your business owes money to) and can examine the lease of the business premises to ensure you receive legal advice to best suit the nature and complexity of the sale.
