Buying shares is a serious transaction. It may lead to the company takeover or contribute to increased profits that come from being a shareholders. In each case, your interests should be properly secured. We have been dealing with shares sale and purchase transactions for over 10 years and got considerable experience. We will be your partner to take care of your safety, negotiate the best possible financial terms and make sure the transaction will take place.
For many years we have been working with investors and individuals who either plan to buy shares or are in the process of buying them. We know that the provision of comprehensive services is important to them. That is why we offer support throughout the entire shares purchase process.
Conducting due diligence
We recommend conducting a due diligence investigation prior to signing a purchase contract. The degree of accuracy of such an investigation depends on the type and size of the company operations: it will be different for a manufacturer of advanced laboratory devices operating based on patents, and quite different for a supermarket chain offering its services directly to consumers.
In-depth knowledge about irregularities in operations of a company you want to buy may protect you from unfavourable results of such a transaction.
If you decide to continue negotiations despite reservations, due diligence investigation will allow you to address some controversial issues before buying the company and will most often make the sale price go down.
If you buy a minority share, you should check whether you will have a real influence on the company operations.
Identifying favourable payment terms
We will advise you on how to successfully establish the principles behind the sale price payment. Our assistance will not only apply to a single payment but also to price subsidies paid successively after company acquisition, depending on its financial results in next financial years.
Influencing the company operations
If you buy a minority share in the company, you should check whether you will have a real influence on the company operations. Will your consent be necessary to appoint the Management Board, make decisions on profit distribution or allow others to join the company in the future? These and many other issues need to be agreed between the buyer and the seller. We will advise you on how to secure your interests in this situation in the best possible manner.
Increasing the seller’s liability
Business owners usually do not want to be liable for condition of the company they sell. Since they have been running business for many years without major problems, they see no grounds to be liable for any legal defects of the company. In their opinion, there are no reasons to worry. Some buyers, encouraged by bargain price of business, agree to such a solution and soon have to face various problems.
We will take care of your safety and recommend the seller’s scope of liability that will best suit the transaction. We will decide which business operations are the most risky and how to properly protect you against their effects.
Sellers are usually advised by attorneys with years of experience in transaction law.
If you want to have equal opportunities in the purchase and negotiation process, you should also have experienced lawyers on your side who not only have the required legal knowledge but, above all, great expertise in carrying out complex transactions. Only then will your business be properly secured.
For many years we have worked for Polish and international law firms, where we dealt mainly with transactions and thus gained considerable experience in this field.
We will guide you through the entire procedure for buying shares and answer every transaction-related question you might have.
