Business Services

The firm is well-versed in acting for commercial and corporate sellers and buyers. We have represented clients across the UK for a significant period of time with transactions ranging from medium-scale asset sale transactions to larger-scale multi-million-pound corporate deals.

We understand that no two transactions are the same and that it is often necessary to appoint a solicitor who is commercially aware and thinks outside of the box. That’s where we can help.

Our Corporate and Commercial Team will work in partnership with you and your company to identify the key solutions required to enable you to meet your business objectives.

We know that business sales and purchases can often be complicated affairs. We deal with everything from initial negotiations through to managing the due diligence process and keep you fully informed on every contract or agreement required to facilitate the transaction, ensuring your interests are protected every step of the way.

Coupe Bradbury represents commercial and corporate clients across the country on business sales and purchases (on both a share and asset basis) across sectors including retail, engineering, childcare and healthcare.

We can assist you with the following:

  • Advising on proceeding by way of a share sale (transfer of limited company) or asset sale (transfer of goodwill and assets)
  • Drafting appropriate Confidentiality Agreements or Non-Disclosure Agreements
