Mergers & Acquisitions

MSR Solicitors has expertise in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) law advice under English law. With a team of experienced and knowledgeable lawyers, we offer comprehensive and tailored legal services to clients seeking guidance in navigating the complex world of M&A transactions.

Our firm has a proven track record of providing successful outcomes for our clients in a wide range of industries. We understand that every M&A transaction is unique and requires a thorough understanding of the specific legal, financial, and strategic aspects involved. That is why we take a collaborative approach, working closely with our clients to provide practical and commercial solutions that meet their objectives.

What is M&A Law?

M&A law is a highly specialised area of law that deals with the legal aspects of the buying, selling, merging, or restructuring of companies. It involves a complex web of laws, regulations, and case law that govern these transactions. As such, it is crucial to have a team of legal advisors who have a deep understanding of the legal and commercial implications of these transactions.

We have advised on a wide range of transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, and strategic alliances. We have the knowledge and expertise to provide comprehensive advice at every stage of the transaction, from the initial negotiations to the final completion.

A Bespoke Solution

One of the key strengths of our M&A practice is our ability to provide tailored and strategic advice to our clients. We understand that each transaction has its own unique set of challenges and complexities, and we work closely with our clients to address these issues effectively. Our

use this knowledge to help our clients achieve their goals – including due diligence, transaction structuring, drafting and negotiating transaction documents, regulatory compliance, and post-transaction support.

We are well-versed in drafting and negotiating complex transaction documents, such as share purchase agreements, asset purchase agreements, and shareholders’ agreements.

Due Diligence

Our due diligence services are crucial in any M&A transaction, as they help identify and assess potential risks and liabilities. When representing the purchaser, we conduct thorough due diligence on all aspects of the target company, including its financial, legal, and operational aspects. This allows our clients to make informed decisions and mitigate any potential risks before finalizing the transaction. In addition to providing legal advice, we also work closely with our clients to ensure regulatory compliance.

Our Recent M&A Work

  • MSR Solicitors recently represented a client which was the subject of a acquisition in respect of two pharmacies. The sale was contingent upon both pharmacies being sold together, with the business being sold as a going concern.
  • We also represented a company that was taking over a commercial tenancy in Chinatown, in order to set up a new restaurant. The takeover was further to a preliminary Joint Venture Agreement, which we also drafted.

If you are looking to acquire a company’s shares or assets, or you have received an offer, then MSR Solicitors is on hand to assist.
