Management buyouts – what are they and how we can help

A management buyout (or MBO) is the term used to describe the process involved when a management team purchases all or part of a business from its present owners.

Buyouts are an exciting and often lucrative opportunity, but they can also be highly stressful and time consuming. As these kinds of transactions can be highly complex, it’s crucial to find a law firm with significant Corporate Law experience to guide you through the process. The interests of the sellers, investors and the purchasing management team need to be managed and balanced, which where our Corporate Lawyers can help.

  • Draft restrictive covenants
  • Negotiate terms
  • Negotiate warranties
  • Provide employment advice

  • Prepare the share purchase agreement
  • Prepare the investment agreement

We have worked with business of all sizes to help facilitate a smooth MBO process. From private equity firms and venture capitalists to limited companies and PLCs, our team have a breadth of experience.
