Business sales and purchases

Lodders’ fast-growing M&A team has a strong track record of delivering practical, insightful legal advice that helps to get the deal done. We work closely with our typically owner-manager / private company clients and their advisers to understand the business, the marketplace, and the core objectives for the transaction.  Our deal size is typically £2m-£20m with many deals in the £7m-£15m range, but whatever the size of your transaction please do get in touch.

Our specialist solicitors have experience in a wide range of sectors including engineering, software, healthcare and manufacturing, and can advise you on share sales and purchases, business sales and purchases, management buy-outs, and fundraising. From the due diligence stage, right the way through to completion and integration, our dedicated team will guide you through the process to ensure that your business sale or purchase is as seamless as possible and you achieve the best commercial outcome.
