Specialist solicitors for buying a business

So, you’ve decided to buy a business. Congratulations – this is an exciting time! But, whether you’ve only just started to search for businesses for sale or have got as far as making an offer, you’ll know (or will have been told) the next step is to appoint a solicitor.

It’s tempting to use someone you already know – perhaps the solicitor who you last engaged to draw up your will – but just as you wouldn’t go to a personal injury solicitor to help you write your will, you shouldn’t use a general high street solicitor or non specialist to buy your business.

Choosing professional advisors who specialise in business purchases, are familiar with your industry sector and understand the ins and outs of your business, will keep you ahead of the game and save you time and money.
