Our award-winning team of corporate finance lawyers has an established track record of providing expert guidance to clients on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), across all sectors of the economy and including a wide range of deal values.

Proven expertise in M&A

We work with businesses of all sizes, from start-ups and SMEs to large multinational corporations, and we have significant experience of providing expert advice to family-owned businesses. Many of our M&A lawyers are dual-qualified (in Scotland and England & Wales), and we regularly advise on deals under both Scots and English law.  

If you are looking to acquire or invest in another business – whether as a new venture or as an expansion of your existing business – we can support you through the process. We take the time to ensure we fully understand your requirements in order to deliver practical and proactive solutions and provide the best possible outcome for you.  

Similarly, if you are planning to sell your business, you can count on us to provide strategic support and advice. We provide guidance on appropriate exit strategies, managing expectations throughout the process and addressing key considerations, including tax implications, employment matters, contracts and post-acquisition collaboration. 

We will guide and support you throughout the process, including carrying out due diligence and negotiating of the sale terms and conditions, ensuring confidentiality at all stages and all with a commercial focus on achieving a successful completion with the best possible outcome for you. You can think of us as an insurance policy. 

With significant experience of advising on M&A transactions, our lawyers have the technical expertise to identify risks, potential issues and the likely pitfalls early on, and will work with you proactively to pre-empt problems. We can provide you with peace of mind and protection against all contingencies.  

Our award-winning team is rated by both Legal 500 and Chambers as one of the best in Scotland. In addition, through our membership of Interlaw, we have access to a huge network of international law firms and can obtain advice on any international aspects of a transaction, for example, if your purchase target had overseas subsidiaries or offices.
