Braddon and Snow’s Company and Commercial team can advise buyers on all aspects of business acquisitions, from the initial stages of discussion, through to the final legal documents.
Regardless of the size of the business, it is important to take a detail-orientated approach to these transactions from the very start, to avoid surprises and unnecessary costs. We have undertaken acquisition deals for a wide range of clients, but our particular expertise is in small-medium family firms, where we aim to provide practical and sensible advice based on your individual business.
We have strong relationships with other local professionals, such as accountants and tax advisors, who help us to provide a cohesive service. This is especially important during acquisition negotiations, as accurate valuations of a business are instrumental to a successful purchase. We also aim to provide detailed advice on the risks and responsibilities which you take on when purchasing a new business, to ensure that you understand the implications of the deal. The phrase “buyer beware” is unfortunately quite apt in some acquisitions!
