Having acted for office holders, we are well placed to know what can and cannot be negotiated into a contract and will advise you accordingly to ensure time is not wasted.
We have expertise in structuring transactions on behalf of purchasers. We will look at the best method to incorporate the business into your existing corporate structure, most commonly by establishing a new company to purchase the business and assets and ring-fence liabilities.
Pre-packaged administration transactions are another area of expertise. If you are looking to purchase a business being advertised for sale on a distressed basis, we can use our market contacts to obtain critical information and access to the pre-pack process to negotiate a purchase.
Recent experience includes:
- Advising in connection with the pre-packaged purchase of the Wine Cellar off-licences
- Advising on the purchase of certain stores from a large furniture retail chain
- Advising a buyer in the purchase of luxury chocolatier, Rococo Chocolates Limited
Advising buyers of insolvent businesses is part of Shoosmiths’ wider corporate restructuring & advisory offering. If you would like help finding the right team or lawyer please contact us on +44 (0)3700 863 000 or contact us by email to [email protected].
