Acquisitions and Disposals for Private Companies

We have extensive experience in advising on acquisitions and disposals of both private companies and businesses across a wide range of sectors. We are able to draft and advise on relevant agreements and ancillary documents whether for a share sale or business acquisition.

In private acquisitions, the buyer is typically a limited liability company, public or private. If a limited liability company buyer does not have sufficient assets or is a newly created company, the seller will typically ask for a corporate guarantee from the buyer’s owners.

The seller is usually a private limited company or a public limited company.

We support and advise on acquisitions and disposals involving private and public companies, across a wide range of sectors.
