Buying or selling a Business can be a technical, complex and sometimes long-winded process on account of the sheer number of issues that have to be considered, some of which are listed below.
We have acted for many small and medium-sized companies, family businesses, sole traders and partnerships over the years and have extensive experience in dealing with specific requirements – for example, Public Houses, Restaurants and other Licensed Premises as well as professional practices such as Dentists, Doctors & Opticians.

- agreeing Heads of Terms
- dealing with related freehold or leasehold property
- dealing with tangible & intangible assets
- due diligence
- planning issues
- statutory employment issues
- restrictive trading and other covenants
