Services For You Business Start-up Lawyers

Sale / Purchase of a Business

If you are looking to sell or purchase a company (or its assets), Themis Solicitors is here to advise, draft and guide you through the process from start to finish.

From the outset of discussions, it is vital that those selling or buying a business (or its assets) seek legal advice. Be as honest as possible throughout the process, hire professionals and protect the integrity of your business.

Share or Asset Purchase?

A share purchase is when the buyer inherits the company, warts and all. Every liability on that balance sheet will become the buyers. Whereas an asset sale, the buyer can select the assets that they inherit – staff, equipment, property, database etc.

Due Diligence Process

Due diligence uncovers some of the hidden aspects of the business, and poor consideration could cost you dearly. This is the stage in the selling process where the vendor will have to disclose information and documentation about their business under close scrutiny.

Full Disclosure

The potential buyer should seek a comprehensive list of documents and information from the seller. The request for such information is normally sought by the solicitor representing the buyer. The requests are set out in a Due Diligence Questionnaire.
