Buying & Selling a Business

200 years of trusted commercial legal advice

Buying or selling a business can be a life-changing step for all concerned, so like any major transaction of this nature it is important that the process is built on a foundation of understanding that is common across all parties.

Steps in the process will include but will not be limited to Due Diligence, Heads of Terms and TUPE Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment), and in order to navigate the sometimes-choppy waters of business sale or acquisition it is important you engage with a trusted legal partner such as RHW.

RHW is a Guildford based firm of solicitors who have the legal expertise and real-world experience to conclude your transaction as quickly and securely as is possible. Our team will be with you at every step, offering advice and support as well as ensuring that every box is ticked along the way. It’s our job to free from the legal burden of buying or selling a business so that you are free to plan for your next steps.

“As soon as we spoke to Nick we knew they were the solicitors for us. Consistently friendly, helpful and efficient we couldn’t have asked for more whilst selling our business. Their knowledge, advice and professionalism was like a comfort blanket especially when things got stressful.

The sale went through on time and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

Thank you again Nick and Alice for all your work."

JD, Surrey

“I have used the services of RHW solicitors in Guildford on several occasions, for both business and personal purposes.

Every time they delivered a very professional service and kept me up-to-date throughout each project.

Did they offer value for money? Yes, absolutely. It was well worth it for the peace of mind of having the legal advice and services of their experienced team of lawyers onboard.

I recommend RHW for their property and commercial law services. I understand that they have a highly-regarded family law team too.”

BW, Surrey

“Just thought you might be interested to know that your advice last autumn helped to conclude a franchise agreement in December and I am now up and running…

If I need any further help of a legal nature I will certainly be in touch.”
