Acquisitions & Disposals

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!


What our clients say

  • "No improvement to service needed. Alison was the epitome of professional calm in going over options and maintaining patience, and indeed advised against a path that certainly would have achieved higher fees for her, but the correct call in retrospect. So I feel her advice was professional and unbiased. She was attentive in keeping me appraised of news, and maintained a polite and stress free approach which kept me calm and optimistic a final result in my favour would occur. Would recommend her, and the firm, to others." Anon
  • “The service received was first class and I am now using Chris for a second property and have recommended him to others as well.” Mrs Q
  • “Dealt with Alison primarily for Power of Attorney, very helpful and polite.” Anon

  • "Our solicitor has been extremely conscientious at all times, always available to advise and above all has always been very supportive and empathetic to my case. He really did make a stressful situation a lot easier for myself and my family" Mrs T
