Business Sale & Business Purchase Solicitors


When buying or selling a business, you will want to ensure that you have legal support with the knowledge, qualification, passion and experience to pilot you to your objective. This is a specialist legal area that requires the application of experience. Jonathan Mounteney has been involved in buying and selling businesses during:

  • Almost 10 years as an in-house solicitor for Sony Group and for Co-operative Financial Services
  • Over 15 years in private practice, advising blue-chip clients such as Clarion plc, Civica and others.

We offer business owners all the support they need in buying and selling business – from initial negotiation; through due diligence; finance arrangements; the transaction itself; to assistance with the business administration after sale.

We have been involved in numerous transactions for sellers and purchasers of all sizes and sectors – our experience is second-to-none and our strategy is no-nonsense to get the deal done.

How long will it take?

The time taken for our work to conclude depends on precisely what it is we are asked to do. This is a complicated product not amenable to quick implementation, however the drafting of the documents will usually be completed within a few days of taking your full instructions.

We will take your instructions and advise as appropriate, then produce a suit of documents required to implement the transfer in the most cost-effective and likely to succeed manner.
