Mergers & Acquisitions

A company buyout is complex, time-consuming and often extremely stressful. Our specialist team can advise and support you through the whole process, making sure that you maximise your options to achieve the very best deal structure.

There is no such thing as a typical merger. Each one has its own issues and complexities and involves a thorough financial audit and a complex process of due diligence.

With experience of both UK and international buyers, the team at Varney Barfield are used to handling mergers and acquisitions worth up to £30 million.

If you are looking to sell your business, it’s worth speaking to us first; a successful transaction is often defined by the quality of professional help you employ!

Timing is critical and we can talk you through the implications of a merger or acquisition and the long term impact it is likely to have on your organisation.

Then we can conduct a full company valuation and implement strategies that will enhance your business’s appeal to investors. This will allow us to source the most suitable buyer, either in the UK or internationally.

Working as a team

A merger involves a whole range of people – the Lead Adviser, the lawyers, the management team and the employees. Only by working efficiently together can we achieve the right results for you and your business.

We can take on the role of Lead Adviser and appoint experienced lawyers to undertake due diligence in all areas of the business.

Or we can work with an appointed Lead Adviser, providing detailed reports on the accounting records, undertaking financial, legal and environmental audits, examining the provisions of the Share Purchase Agreements and your employees’ rights - and conducting thorough investigations into the organisation’s processes, policies and even the IT systems.

Guiding you through

Almost more important than the technical support you’ll receive from us is the understanding and emotional support you’ll get.

We understand how complex the process can be and we’ll work with you to make sure we achieve your goals, whilst doing our best to keep your stress levels to a minimum!
