With the end of the year fast approaching and thoughts turning to 2023, we find that this is the time of year when we get lots of enquiries about buying and selling businesses. If you’re thinking about switching things up a bit in 2023, here’s our quick guide to some of the things you should be thinking about when buying or selling a business and how Jamieson Law can help.
We’ll take a deep dive into the history of the company you’re interested in buying and audit the key legal documents. We don’t leave a stone unturned and if something doesn’t look right, we’ll tell you. If you’re selling your business, Jamieson Law can speed up the process by helping you get the right documents in place before potential buyers start the due diligence process on your business.
Drafting and negotiating documents
A well-drafted and carefully negotiated legal document will save you from trouble further down the line. Why? Well because if your legal documents aren’t fit for purpose then you could find yourself liable for some big fines. Drafting and negotiating legal documents is our bread and butter, we’ll prepare documents that protect your interests and manage your risks.
Contract reviews and Heads of Terms
This is where having a member of the Jamieson Law team on your side will really bring you some peace of mind. Whether you’re buying or selling, we’ll review the contracts and Heads of Terms before anything is signed and advise you on your next steps.
If you’re thinking of rebranding or launching new products, our intellectual property law team are on hand to guide you through the due diligence and registration process.
Navigating your legal obligations as an employer can be complex and probably not where you want to focus your valuable time either. That’s why Jamieson Law provides UK businesses with bespoke employment law advice and HR legal support.
