Getting the balance right between running a company and handling the buy-out process can be daunting for management teams and existing relationships with the owners of the business can make this challenging.

We act for a huge number of aspiring business owners who want to take the next step and buyout the business that they have worked for. We also support sellers who have found that the management are the right choice for taking the business forward.

Our expertise includes:

Acting for sellers to MBO and MBI teams

Advising on funding options

Helping aspiring MBI candidates to complete MBIs

Helping MBO teams realise their ambitions to become legal owners of the companies they work for

Introducing potential funders

Striking the delicate balance between management and their existing employers during the sale process

Although an MBO team is likely to know more about the target company than an MBI team, you will still need the sellers to provide due diligence if needed by your funders. We can help with explaining funding options – not just helping you find a potential lender, but looking at more creative options, such as the price being funded by the existing assets of the target company.

Through the entire process we will hold your hand and explain what you should expect and how to approach the transition from employee to ownership.
