A merger or acquisition is a key event for any business. Merging with or acquiring another company, whether to expand into additional sectors, geographies, or to increase economies of scale, is a significant opportunity for a business and can have far-reaching implications for everyone involved.
However, growing a business like this can be a hugely complex matter and transactions must be handled correctly to avoid the many hazards that lie in wait along the way.
We advise corporate clients, financial institutions, business owners and private equity firms on all manner of company mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and can handle the legal side of the entire process to make sure the transaction is successful and goes smoothly.

M&A Solicitors for Business
A merger is where two companies combine to form one new company. An acquisition is where one company takes over another company, with both retaining their legal status after the transaction is completed.
There are two main types of acquisition:
- Share Purchase. This is where the buyer acquires the shares of the target company from the shareholders, which includes its assets, liabilities, rights and obligations.
- Asset Purchase. This is when a buyer buys assets from a target company. It allows a buyer to pick which assets they wish to buy and leave any other parts they are not interested in.
Many issues need to be considered in an M&A transaction, and specialist legal advice must be sought from the outset.
