Helping you to navigate the mergers and acquisition process

Every transaction is unique, which is why our advice is always tailor-made for the situation. Based on a clear understanding of all parties involved, we help you to achieve your commercial objectives swiftly and smoothly.

Corporate law focuses on the needs and obligations of business owners, investors, shareholders and other stakeholders. It’s often considered separately from business services law, which helps with legal aspects of operations.

By far the best way to consider corporate law is in the context of the business life cycle. From blue-chip organisations to owner-managers, SA Law’s corporate law advisors can help you at all stages of the business life cycle from start-up to exit. We advise all parties – those within the business itself, and those who are entering into a relationship with it such as a bank or other investor.

Furthermore, we have niche experience of many specialist sectors and industries such as professional services, property, hotel and leisure, retail, healthcare, sport, media and entertainment. In all situations, our experienced corporate law solicitors provide practical solutions that successfully contribute to enhanced stability, growth and profitability.

Mergers, acquisitions and disposals

Expert mergers and acquisitions advice for your business growth plans

Mergers and acquisitions can be effective ways to grow your organisation, allowing you to integrate the resources of another to grow your own. Nevertheless, the size and nature of these transactions can pose a number of risks to all parties.

Purchasers need to be certain they get exactly what they pay for. This can require extensive due diligence to understand the history and operations of the target organisation. Equally, sellers want to optimise the financial position of the organisation prior to sale.

The transfer of business ownership, whether a transfer of the shares or the assets touches on other aspects of law that must be addressed and so we work closely with our colleagues, mainly in the property and employment teams in an effort to address any issues that may come back at a later date. There may also be specific expectations of the seller that need to be aired and agreed.

SA Law’s dedicated corporate team provides mergers and acquisitions advice to large and small companies, with clients recommending our responsive, commercial and pragmatic service.
