If you’re thinking of selling your Toy Shop, Book Shop or Gift Shop, or you already have an offer on the table, 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.

Whether you’re retiring, moving on to a new business venture, or forced to sell due to ill health, the process for selling a shop is more complex than just coming up with a fair market value.  As if you’re not busy enough maintaining the day-to-day operations of your business, you’ll have the worry of making important legal and commercial decisions that will affect the outcome of your sale. It 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.
