Business Acquisitions & Disposals

Business acquisitions and disposals can take many forms including out-right purchases, mergers, management buy-ins, share purchases or partial disposals, to name a few. Regardless of the specific nature of the deal you are considering, it is vital to seek specialist legal advice at an early stage so as to ensure your commercial and personal interests are protected.

Such a significant transaction can carry with it a broad range of legal and financial risk. Such risks will be increased where specialist, commercial legal advice and representation are missing, or where the necessary legal expertise is not combined with specific experience and knowledge of the manufacturing and engineering industry within which you operate.

Holmes & Hills has a team of solicitors with experience in advising and representing business owners and managers in your sector, on issues directly and indirectly related to the disposal or acquisition of a business. This includes dealing with all related Employment Law (TUPE), finance, commercial property, restructuring, contract, agreement and legacy dispute issues.

When you seek advice on such a transaction from Holmes & Hills Solicitors, you will be able to draw on specialists in each of these areas, should it be required, ensuring you get the expert legal advice you need to deal with every aspect of the deal, from initial due diligence through to completion. Holmes & Hills is a recognised leading regional law firm for the provision of legal advice across several areas of law, so you can be sure the legal advice and representation you receive is some of the best available.
