Law Firm Mergers
We offer a first class, independent consultancy service to the legal profession. Our Practice Lead is a top-rated facilitator and a recognised expert, having personally worked within this area of the profession since 1999.
A law firm is unlike any other professional services firm or traditional high street business. Different rules apply. A different approach and methodology is required. We understand this.
There are many reasons why a sole practitioner or partnership may wish to explore the benefits and feasibility of selling their firm, the merger with, or acquisition of another. We examine and evaluate all aspects of the firm, including culture, specialisms, office location(s), operational expertise, financial status, management capability, human capital, professional indemnity insurance position, SRA history and more. We ensure the sale, merger or acquisition is being considered for the right strategic or commercial reasons, is the best route to take, and will ultimately benefit you, our client.
Our professional service covers all aspects of the sale, merger or acquisition process. It includes placing a realistic and achieveable value on the practice, capitalising on any ‘hidden’ value, structuring the deal and marketing the firm in the right way so that the best outcome is achieved.
We provide introductions having qualified all merger or purchasing principals as bona fide and obtained a signed Non-Disclosure Agreement.
We proactively and professionally manage all negotiations and keep the transaction moving, chair meetings if requested, advise on Heads of Terms then liaise with the nominated law firm who will carry out due diligence, draft the Sale and Purchase Agreements, exchange contracts then complete on the transaction.
We have a panel of corporate finance specialists who can advise on professional practice funding (subject to status) and tax.
We would also be interested in hearing from those wishing to only transfer Personal Injury or Clinical Negligence files, other work in progress or a bank of Wills.
