Who We Can Help and How

Aristone Solicitors’ expert team of mergers and acquisitions solicitors advises public and private companies, institutional investors, and private individuals. Our approach ensures the success of your transaction by:

  • Identifying Objectives: Working closely with you to understand your goals and ensure the transaction aligns with your business strategy.
  • Structuring Transactions: Determining whether the sale and purchase should proceed via share or asset sale, considering unique structures, tax implications, and the most beneficial solutions in collaboration with your tax and accounting advisors.

Key Considerations for Business Acquisition or Disposal

When preparing to sell your business, the type of ownership will affect the sale transaction. Here’s how:

  • Sole Trader or Partnership: An asset sale is the only option unless the business is incorporated before selling.
  • Incorporated Company: A sale of shares is typically the most tax-efficient method for the seller.

From a buyer’s perspective, acquiring a business through asset acquisition may be more attractive as it allows the selection of desired assets and the avoidance of certain liabilities. However, since most sellers prefer share sales for tax benefits, we work with buyers to minimise the risks associated with unwanted liabilities.
