Mergers and Acquisitions

Many businesses look to acquisitions as a way of expanding into new markets or territories, combining expertise with another business and creating economies of scale.

Our corporate lawyers assist both buyers and sellers with a diverse range of transactional activity. We aim to simplify the transaction process and work with you to ensure that the best commercial terms and appropriate legal protections available to you are reflected in the legal documentation.

Examples of the types of transactions we can assist you with include:

  • the sale and purchase of shares in a company
  • the transfer of a business as a going concern – this will encompass a review of any potential TUPE impact and immediately identify third party control issues that may have the potential to delay the transaction
  •  sale and purchase of material assets including intellectual property and machinery
  • auction sales
  • acquisitions out of insolvency from administrators and liquidators
  • diligence and strategic advice on potential target companies

“We’ve used Square One Law since it started. When Alan and Ian first came to see us we said, ‘Well, we don’t really do much with lawyers’, but as the business has grown, I think we are one of their largest customers.”
