Key considerations when buying a business


While the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for many businesses, it has also resulted in many business owners deciding to go in a new direction. As a result, more businesses than ever are changing hands.

If you are considering buying a business, it is important to understand the legal and operational implications. To help you, Sarah Aldersley (Practice Leader) and Matthew DeRusha (Senior Lawyer) are holding a free webinar to discuss how to:

  • ensure you are buying the right assets to run your business 
  • obtain any consents to transfer contracts
  • decide on the business’ existing employees
  • prevent the seller from competing with the business.

Following the webinar, there will be a live Q&A. If you are unable to make it, you can still register and we will send you a copy of the recording.
