Buying a business
Buying a business is one of the most important and complex transactions you can undertake; ensuring the process is as smooth and efficient as possible for you is our key aim.
What we do
We are experts in guiding clients through the process of Buying a business and have gained recognition in leading legal directories such as the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.
From the structuring of the offer through to due diligence and the detailed contract negotiations, we will manage the process, provide expert guidance and go beyond what you would expect of a lawyer to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome. This is because we work with you to understand what you would like to achieve from the project, and then focus our efforts to enable you to meet your goals.
Whether the project involves the acquisition of shares in a company, the purchase of a division of a large corporate or the business and assets of a small company, our team has in-depth knowledge enabling us to anticipate the issues that often arise.
Many of the transactions we work on are complex, often involve an international element, and though our membership of the international network of boutique law firms, INBLF, and other relationships established over many years, we have the ability to provide integrated legal services through almost all international jurisdictions.
Who we do it for
Our Corporate Team assists companies and individuals through the process of buying a business every year, with clients ranging from large corporates, foreign companies, owner-managed businesses, management teams and individual shareholders. This means we give you practical advice, based on our extensive experience, when you need it most.
Recent acquisitions experience
"Having worked with Danos over a number of years and with the team at RB, we value their understanding of our business and commercial goals. RB helped see us through the transaction and overcome any points that arose to complete the deal within our desired timeframe. We continue to be extremely satisfied with their professionalism, responsiveness and pragmatism and value our ongoing relationship with them as we continue our business expansion strategy."
"Whilst we understand the medical market well this was our first acquisition and as such it was quite daunting. We were guided every step of the way exceptionally well by Rawlison Butler who ensured that they understood our vision and constructed the purchase appropriately. I would have no hesitation in recommending or working with Rawlison Butler again".
"Rawlison Butler are our trusted advisers who we can rely on to understand our commercial objectives first, and then develop a legal framework to support them. They are responsive; available whenever we need them and pragmatic in their advice. Moreover, as a full services law firm, they are able to deal with all of our requirements including corporate, tax, employment, IP and real estate matters."
