At MBM Commercial we have built a strong reputation advising clients on the acquisition and disposal of businesses. Indeed, we love the fact that we get to act for clients from their initial investment through to a successful exit. For some clients, strategic acquisitions are key to their growth, whether as part of a medium-term exit strategy, or a longer-term expansion plan. Whether strategic or opportunistic, our work with buyers and sellers of businesses is a key part of our skill set.
We act on high-profile and complex transactions, but we are acutely aware that comparatively small deals can be life-changing for the individuals involved. We provide high-quality commercial and strategic advice whatever the complexity of the deal. We handle all aspects of M&A deals from start to finish including:
- Confidentiality and exclusivity
- Deal structuring
- Negotiating Term Sheets
- Due diligence (including managing and advising on the use of online data rooms and technical reviews of patent and trademark portfolios)
- Drafting and negotiating acquisition agreements
- Project management (including shareholder communications and distribution of sale proceeds)
Every deal is different, and we will structure our deal team to include input from specialist advisors from other practice areas such as property, employment and, intellectual property. Our team are skilled project managers and have years of experience in executing deals within challenging timescales.
While a majority of deals can usually be done under English or Scottish law, if compelling reasons require foreign law to apply, we can identify and engage quickly and seamlessly with legal teams in other jurisdictions. We also run US transactions with the help of our US attorneys.
We have significant experience advising on acquisition and disposals, from the perspective of both the buyer and the seller, in a wide range of sectors including information technology, biotechnology, life sciences, healthcare, professional services, retail, manufacturing and leisure and hospitality. We guarantee that our deal team will work closely with you throughout the transaction to truly understand and prioritise your business needs.
We believe that to achieve an optimal outcome for our clients we need to anticipate issues, understand what is important and what is not, be proactive and not just responsive and make sure that our clients get the benefit of our years of experience.
Our experience is clear from the deals which the corporate team have been involved in.
