Business Sales & Purchases

Brookfields Lawyers routinely advise clients on business sales and purchases. We make sure our clients make the appropriate choice for their circumstances and that the sale and purchase agreement deals with the issues to ensure a clean transfer of assets or shares with the appropriate allocation of risk between the vendor and purchaser.

What we do:

  • Advise on the best method to sell or buy the business balancing complexity against the risks for vendor and purchaser
  • Advise on regulatory issues (such as Employment Relations Act 2000 and Commerce Act 1986)
  • Due diligence and any remedial action required
  • Setting (and later satisfying) any conditions
  • Review of leases
  • Attending to release of securities
  • Drafting and negotiating the agreement for sale and purchase
  • Related financing
  • Employment relations advice
  • Documentation required to actually transfer the assets or shares on settlement
