Business Mergers and Acquisitions

Business mergers and acquisitions describe a situation where two businesses are pooling resources, or where a business is acquiring another business (usually for the purposes of business growth and expansion in a particular field).

Business mergers and acquisitions can often include a number of legal, financial and operational aspects that need to be taken into account, from pensions, tax, funding and liabilities to management and workforce issues.

At Rotheras we have a wealth of experience in advising business owners and corporate clients, on a wide range of business mergers and acquisitions, ranging from simple negotiations to complex transactions.

Why use Rotheras for your Business Mergers and Acquisitions transactions?

Our corporate team work with you to make sure the process runs smoothly, and you get the outcome you want in a timely manner.

We can work with buyers who are acquiring a company to minimise the risk of taking on unwanted liabilities or advise you of the risk so that you understand what you are getting into.

We can advise on all documents involved in your merger or acquisition, draft documents and review and negotiate agreements prepared by the other side’s solicitor.

We will liaise with our other departments where appropriate in order to address all your legal issues and further ensure a successful transaction.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.
