Acquisitions, Disposals and Mergers

If you are considering buying or selling a business, then our Birmingham-based specialist solicitors can guide you through the complex legal process, saving you both time and money.

Acquisitions and mergers

While a merger involves two companies coming together and integrating, forming one new company, an acquisition sees one company buying the assets of another.

In both cases, it is vital to plan and research in advance to make sure you find the right business to work with. Our dedicated lawyers can assist you with this process by using their professional knowledge to anticipate any risks or pitfalls.

We can then negotiate the deal on your behalf, before carrying out the required due diligence, reviewing the safe documentation and dealing with any commercial premises.


If you are thinking of selling your business, then you want the maximum return on your investment, so the first step is to get a business valuation.

Regardless of the size of your business, the experienced solicitors at Pearson Rowe can take care of the required legalities – including contracts, warranties and indemnities, transfers of undertakings (TUPE), heads of agreement, exclusivity and confidentiality agreements and letters of intent.

We can also advise on tax law, so you can make the most of the allowances and reliefs available to significantly increase your capital.
