Our Services for Selling a Business

  • We process sales as quickly as possible. Our solicitors cover various industries, business sectors, and ownership concerns on sale.

How our Commercial Law Solicitors can help?

Our Commercial Law Solicitors at Solicitors INN have an in-depth knowledge of commercial law. Whether you have a new small business or a well-established organization, we offer customized legal solutions to your challenges. We provide comprehensive advice and representation on a wide range of commercial trading and business arrangements, including buying/selling a business, commercial contracts, liabilities, and joint ventures.

There are two primary methods of acquiring an existing operational business:

  • An asset sale occurs when all (or portion) of the business’s assets and contracts are transferred to the buyer. However, the company that owns the business remains unchanged.
  • A share sale is when the buyer receives the shares in the company which owns the business.

If the company is not a limited company and is owned by a partnership or an individual, the transaction must be completed through an asset sale. If the company is a limited company, the seller and buyer can select between an asset sale and a share sale.

We submit the applications along with all the required documentation and pieces of information on behalf of the client in time. We obtain updates and provide you with updates on your Commercial Law matters without any delay.
