If you’re thinking of selling your own shop – whether it be a Grocery Store, a Post Office and Convenience Store, an Off-Licence, a Newsagents or a good old-fashioned Sweet Shop – it pays to seek legal advice from a solicitor who specialises in business transfers and who understands the ins and outs of the retail industry.

There are many reasons for selling a shop business. Maybe you’re tired of long hours and unappreciative customers. Or perhaps you feel you’ve grown the business as much as you can and are ready to move on to a new venture.  Whatever the reason, there are many important legal and commercial decisions to be made that will affect the outcome of your sale. The sales process can be something of an emotional roller-coaster with many potential pitfalls along the way.  Seeking advice from an experienced solicitor will take away some of the stress and give you peace of mind that you are making the right decisions for your future.
