Buying/selling shares in a company

Buying shares in a company

When you are buying shares you will be taking on all the liabilities within the business and therefore it is important to investigate the company thoroughly beforehand. This process is known as due diligence.

You then need specialist documentation drawn up to protect your investment.

We can guide you through the process and draft the documentation to protect you and your investment.

Selling shares in a company

Whether you are selling your entire company or just a percentage of the shares you will need to enter into legal documentation and you will need to make sure that you are protected from any claims from a buyer.

We can guide you through the process and draft and/or negotiate the documentation to protect you and your investment.

EL Law corporate and commercial legal services

I was recently referred to Emma as I had an issue with a supplier that needed to be dealt with. Emma quickly grasped the situation and the implications involved. She provided initial guidance and help at no cost and I quickly felt that she behaved as if she was already part of our team. When we instructed Emma to act for us she dealt with the work involved efficiently and on budget. She was available for further advice throughout the process. I will continue to use Emma to get our business procedures in order and would recommend Emma and EL Law to other business owners.
