Selling a Business

If you’re opting to sell your business, we’ll be with you to ensure you understand and prepare all the components that’s required to be included in the contract of sale including:

  • Transferring ownership of the business
  • Fixed assets, equipment & stock

Preparing a well-written and structured contract of sale helps to minimise any issues that could arise after the sale. Our team will work closely with you to tailor a contract of sale that meets the legal requirements and is suitable to your wishes.

Buying a Business or Franchising

Property law is complex and requires expertise to avoid financial pitfalls that can come with buying a business. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a solicitor who takes a client-focused approach to tailor relevant legal advice and is meticulous when it comes to assessing the contract of a sale. We’ll inspect the condition of the property, check the business name registration, and review all the details of the contract to ensure you aren’t getting taken advantage of.
