Selling business is a complicated, risky process. We have been dealing with sale and purchase transactions for over 10 years and got considerable experience. We will be your partner to look after your safety, negotiate the best possible financial terms and make sure the transaction will take place.
For many years we have been working with company owners who either plan to sell their business or are in the process of selling it. We know that the provision of comprehensive services is important to them. This is why we offer support throughout the entire procedure for selling business.
There are some elements, such as potential risks on the part of the purchaser, that might significantly reduce selling price.
For this reason, prior to signing a contract, we recommend performing a due diligence investigation of your company to identify potential risks (ahead of time) that the buyer can use to their advantage in order to lower the price.
We help eliminate problems you might come across during the investigation so that you can charge higher sale price of the company.
If you want to have equal opportunities in the sale and negotiation process, you must have experienced lawyers on your side.
Setting the sale price
Most owners do not know for sure how much their company is worth. Usually, their estimates are much lower compared to a professional valuation.
We work closely with certified business valuation experts. With reliable and easy to understand valuation services, you can rest assured that you will not sell your company at too low price.
Support in negotiations
If a large company, an investment fund or a wealthy investor is interested in buying your business, you should be aware they usually hire attorneys with years of experience in complex transactions.
If you want to have equal opportunities in the sale 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 multiple 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.
Conducting the sale process
We will guide you through the entire company sale process and answer every sale-related question you might have.
We will help you (i) draft a letter of intent, in which the seller and the buyer agree on an action plan, (ii) protect the company confidential information to which the buyer will want to gain access, (iii) draft a contract of sale and (iv) conduct negotiations.
Typically, business owners do not know they may be liable for debts and defects of their company even after it is sold. For such liability does not end when the sale transaction is completed.
We will take care of your safety and limit the scope of your liability. We will decide what you can be liable for (for example, for acting in accordance with permits obtained), and what should rather remain outside your area of liability.
We will also make sure that the price payment is secured and that changes to the company bodies are made.
Securing the price payment
One of the most important aspects of each sale transaction is securing the payment of price determined during negotiations. We will advise you on which mechanism to use to receive the payment, thereby preventing the buyer from acquiring the company before the payment is made.
Introducing changes to the company bodies
If, upon the sale of the company, you wish to resign from the Management Board or other bodies, we will make sure your resignation from any position will be effective, thus helping you avoid liability for future actions of the company, including for its new debts.
As your business earns or receives income during the year, you must pay taxes. We have established close cooperation with experienced tax advisors who will provide you with the best solution regarding your transaction.
