Selling or buying a business
Whilst selling or buying a business can be a great opportunity to realise or create value, corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, MBOs/MBIs and disposals are all extremely complex and time consuming. Many business owners may only experience this type of transaction once in their lifetime, therefore being able to call upon the right experience is paramount to getting a deal that is tailored to your needs and aspirations.
