Buying & Selling Businesses



Get the deal done right and avoid any costly fallout.  

All businesses are different. Rarely does the real value exist in the plant and equipment. As such, sale of business transactions are more susceptible to ending up in expensive litigation if a buyer doesn't feel that they got what they bargained for.  

Our expert Commercial Lawyers will ensure all aspects of the deal are properly addressed so you can get on with businsess, retirement or your next venture sooner.

There's nothing until there's a signed Contract.

How We Help


Our Commercial Lawyers have extensive experience in buying and selling businesses and company mergers and aquisitions.

Most sale of business contracts require payment of a substantial sum for goodwill, an intangible asset. Be sure you are getting what you think you are paying for before binding yourself to a Business Sale Contract.

Buying or selling a business is a commercial transaction. Like every commercial transaction it is fundamental that a comprehensive, clear and accurate Contract be prepared and executed. The clear recording of the buyer's and seller's rights and obligations in a Business Sale Contract will ensure a smooth transaction and minimise the risk of expensive litigation if a dispute later arises.

Remember a business is not bought or sold until a Business Sale Contract has been signed and performed. If your business is located in NSW we can help.

When Should You Speak to a Lawyer?


In most cases it is best that you speak to us about the proposed sale or purchase of business before or during negotiations with the other party. We typically do not charge for this initial advice.

We will usually be able to identify matters that you have overlooked and can then raise directly in the initial negotiations. This may save time and avoid complications by us not having to raise the matter in negotiations after a heads of agreement have been prepared.


Let us take care of the Detail.
