Business and Commercial Due Diligence Solicitors

If you are buying or selling a business, you need an experienced commercial law solicitor to provide advice and protect your interests. A thorough approach and an emphasis on due diligence will ensure you avoid problems later on in the process, guaranteeing a smooth, efficient sale or purchase.

We know exactly which questions to ask at which time and will ensure all appropriate documentation is completed and submitted on time, guaranteeing an efficient sale or purchase.

Due Diligence Ownership and Structure

When we’re dealing with the sale or purchase of a business, one of the first things we check is the ownership and structure of that business.

  • Is it owned by a private individual?
  • Is it owned by a partnership?
  • Is it owned by a limited company?

If it’s owned by a Company:

  • Who are the directors?
  • Who are the shareholders?

We also consider things like: is the buyer purchasing shares in the company or merely assets of the business run by the company?

It is vital that such things are considered as part of the due diligence process if you wish a sale or purchase to run smoothly whilst at the same time ensuring you are aware of all potential tax consequences.
