Due diligence in transfer of businesses

Our goal with any business sale is to minimise the level of risk for the prospective buyer, whilst ensuring the transaction proceeds with the least disruption to staff.

Providing a crucial supporting role to our Corporate department in the due diligence process, we review all employment aspects of the new business.

We highlight any areas of concern such as detrimental terms/conditions within employment contracts, immigration issues and requirements under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) . We advise you of their potential impact on the future of the business and how they can be addressed or resolved.
