We ensure you and your business are covered legally.

Buying and selling a business can be a complex sea of contracts. With often many pages of fine print, it is easy to sometimes scan over and miss important key legal clauses. Before signing any contracts or legal papers, engage the services at Scott Legal to make sure you have yourself and your business covered legally.

Scott Legal can provide assistance and advice at all of the stages of the transaction, including:

  • Evaluating the business opportunity
  • Conducting investigations and due diligence
  • Negotiating and preparing the agreements
  • Finalising the new business

We can:

  • Work with you to consider the factors that must be evaluated when buying or selling a business
  • Advise on the sale or purchase structure
    Draft and review business sale agreements, share sale agreements and related agreements
  • Provide a structure for due diligence and undertake legal and compliance due diligence
  • Assist you with commercial negotiations
  • Prepare memorandums of understanding or letters of intent to set out the key commercial terms
  • Negotiate to ensure that the agreements protect your interests and limit your risks
  • Provide advice on employment issues including employment agreements
  • Assist with completion and integration of the new business into your existing business
  • Advise on current lease and related issues and prepare transfer documentation

We can pick up any changes that may be needed before the contract is signed and complete. Read our blog section to learn more about why structuring your business determines success, succession planning for your business, valuing a business or purchasing a business.
