Richard Biggs, Specialist Commercial Lawyer

Corporate Commercial Legal Services

Specialists in Mergers and Acquisitions

Buying or selling a business is a stressful time for all parties involved. We can advise and support you in acquisitions or disposals, by way of shares or assets. Our experience includes management buy-out and management buy-in. We can deal with negotiating Subscription and Investment Agreements, finance arrangements with banks and private equity funders and the complexities of the security documentation.

Restructuring and Reorganisation Experts

Companies can restructure for a number of reasons including moving critical assets to a holding company, upon a third party investment or as part of an exit plan. Having a specialist legal advisor by your side is a great way of helping to protect your interests.

Shareholder Arrangements

It is important for owners of companies, whether upon a merger or a start up, to understand their respective rights and obligations. These can be set out in Shareholders’ Agreement which is a private document and the Articles of Association of the company which details how it is to be operated. This is a publicly available document and an essential tool in the armoury of a well-managed business.


Employment Incentives

There are a number of ways of incentivising senior staff other than simply by salary or bonuses. Share packages, if properly constructed, can be very tax efficient. These include Enterprise Management Incentive Options and employee share status arrangements.

It is critical these days for directors to be fully aware of their duties and responsibilities. We can advise you about this and provide assistance if your company is undergoing difficult times. We also incorporate companies and limited liability partnerships.

Business Arrangements

Advice is available in relation to all major types of agreement including franchise, distribution, agency, terms and conditions, intellectual property licences and other commercial agreements.
