Selling a Business

You’ve worked hard to build up your business so when it comes to selling it, you want to reap the rewards of your efforts. A commercial law specialist who can guide you expertly through the sale will ensure the complete process runs smoothly and more beneficially to you.

Selling a business whether large or small involves a number of legal steps. Our commercial team led by partner Sherine Silva has an extensive track record of helping entrepreneurs and business owners. Let us help you to take some of the headaches away at this critical time and make your business sale the success it should be.

Getting the best deal

Valuing your business needs an expert eye to make sure that you achieve the maximum potential sale price while remaining competitive in order to attract serious buyers. In particular, you need to make sure that you realise the value of any intangible assets such as goodwill and intellectual property. Our commercial team will work closely with the valuers to ensure that we can negotiate the best possible deal for you.

Looking after your people

Your staff are probably one of your biggest assets, and we can help you to ensure that any employment law issues are dealt with in an expedient manner. We will guide you through the TUPE process to make sure that your legal obligations are discharged smoothly and efficiently.

Tax implications

Any business sale will involve tax matters that need to be dealt with. You might have made a “capital gain” from the sale, want to transfer your VAT registration to the new owner or need help with tax planning. We can provide expert tax advice to ensure that the sale is legally compliant and that your tax position is as advantageous to you as possible.

Sherine and her team are ideally positioned to advise you on every legal step of the way in the sale of your business, helping you to achieve your commercial objectives.

Our Testimonials

“Dear Karen,

Thank you very much indeed for all that you, William Brown, and your support team at Hodders have done in connection with this purchase, and with the associated sale of Wallers Haven Barn. There were many times when I thought that we were not going to make one or the other, and it is in very large part down to your persistence that we are exchanged. Your care, patience and attention to detail have been much appreciated.
