Sale or purchase of businesses

When you buy a business, you need sound advice to anticipate any risks to protect your investment. And when you sell a business, you want to achieve the best outcome for all your hard work.

We can help you with:

  • Due diligence
  • Contract preparation, review and negotiation
  • Business structure set up
  • Lease advice
  • Employee and employment advice

Sale of Shares

In certain circumstances, you may wish to or be advised by your accountant to buy or sell the shares in a company.

This requires extra care and consideration in the form of warranties from the seller if you are the buyer. If you are the seller, you also need to carefully consider your position and protect your position.

Terms of Trade

Having clear rules by which you trade with a buyer or seller of goods or a provider of services will prevent disputes and minimise bad debt.

Often, many disputes that arise could be avoided if there had been clear, written Terms of Trade from the start.

We can help you:

  • Draft Terms of Trade
  • Review Terms of Trade
  • Negotiate Terms of Trade
  • Consider or prepare guarantees and indemnities

Company and partnership contracts

Company contracts provide clarity around the rights and obligations of the parties involved and the key terms of the arrangement between the directors and shareholders in a company and partners in a partnership. Each agreement is tailored to individual circumstances, where a range of issues that might arise needs to be considered, dealt with and agreed upon.

We can help you with:

  • Partnership Agreements
  • Joint Venture Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements
