Buying or Selling a Business?
There are distinct advantages in how the deal is structured. It might be preferable if you are selling to deal with the shares of your company, or if you are buying to purchase just the assets of the target company. Our expert advice will ensure that you maximize your returns while minimizing your costs and risks.

Commercial leases form a significant part of the cost and long term obligations of carrying on a business. Our commercial real estate experience ensures that you are fully aware of the complexities associated with your business lease.
