The sale and purchase of businesses is an area of law that is fraught with risk. We can offer advice on how to ensure title of a business and the transfer of all goodwill. There are significant searches and enquiries and investigations that will be carried out in order to protect the interests of our purchaser clients on the purchase of a business. Similarly, we are able to provide and draft effective contracts for sale of business and to bring the sale to completion. Our lawyers are familiar with restraint of trade provisions in contracts for sale of businesses along with matters pertaining to long service leave and other employee statutory entitlements.

Related matters pertaining to commercial leases and retail leases are always taken into account. We have a lot of experience in arranging for statutory release of liability for vendors of businesses in order that there be no continuing liability for rent after settlement has taken place. We are also well versed in all other areas of commercial law.

Please contact either of our law firms if you require advice on the sale and purchase of a business.
