Mergers and Acquisitions is a major feature of the current business landscape. It allows businesses to grow, shrink, change and improve, but it is vital that the stringent regulations involved are followed and expert advice is sought.

Whether it is a share acquisition, asset purchase, management buy-out, or management buy-in, Carter Bond’s team of solicitors are experts in the field and can guide you through the process, highlighting each potential pitfall. We have represented clients across a number of sectors and at every stage of the transaction, from initial advice on exploring the structure, right through to post-completion formalities.


What We Do

  • Work with you at every step of the transaction – initial advice, heads of terms, confidentiality agreements, due diligence, negotiating contract terms, completion and post-completion formalities.
  • Tax implications often dictate your deal structure when buying or selling a company. We will work closely with you, your accountants and any other financial advisors to ensure the correct structure of the transaction.

  • Identify potential liabilities and issues within the business and help you to mitigate your loss.

  • Advise you on your obligations and responsibilities on TUPE and employment law.
