Business Sales & Purchase

We appreciate that the buying, selling and leasing of commercial property requires not only expert legal advice but also the experience to be able to understand your business objectives and vision.

No matter what kind of business you are looking to buy or sell we can help, from smaller businesses to larger enterprises, we can advise across a range of business types including retail shops, internet-based businesses, industrial units, pubs & restaurants, hotels, B&Bs, food & drink suppliers and professional practices such as dentists, medical practices and vets.

Buying or selling a business with employees can be a complicated and difficult transition for all. We have specialist Employment lawyers who can make sure you make the right decisions for everyone involved.

If you would like to sell your business and retain the freehold, we can help by creating a new lease. If you are looking to purchase a leasehold business, we can advise you on what the lease you are signing means for you.

When considering a business purchase, our approach is to unravel the legal complexities involved and take the combined burdens of investigation and paperwork off your hands, simplifying the process for you.
