Are you looking to buy a business to run yourself?

Perhaps seeking to acquire a competing or complementary business to boost your competitive position or consolidate costs?

Whatever your motives and ambitions, buying a business requires meticulous planning, and a clear understanding of the necessary legal processes and procedures.

At Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we have a team of professional legal experts who can help you to identify the right acquisition opportunity, ensure that you have undertaken the appropriate due diligence so that you know exactly what the purchase will offer, and put in place all the legal documentation to protect your interests and ensure that you get the very best value from the assets you acquire.

Taking a strategic approach will help you to get the best long-term value, but you also need to be aware of the implications and consequences of any changes in ownership, so that the decisions you take will be in the best interests of those people you have a stake holding in the business, including existing employees and existing shareholders. And above all, we can help you to make sure any actions are legal and binding.

Cheers to all the VIHS team for helping us to acquire a business that significantly increases our future growth potential, and immediately enhances our market penetration. Lots of complicated negotiations, but we couldn’t have done it without VIHS.
