We act on the sale and purchase of businesses ranging from sole traders through to transactions with listed companies for more than $50m.
Not only do we help you with buying a business we also assist with shareholder agreements, joint ventures, limited partnership agreements, and drafting contracts. We document the arrangements going forward to avoid problems later.
Much of our business and commercial law advice is about mitigating risk for the future. By having terms of trade and carefully drafted distribution agreements and other commercial contracts this could save you disruption and further cost.
Not only do we assist with all the documents to implement a transaction, we have an understanding of taxation issues which is necessary in dealing with all commercial transactions. That is why we are regularly instructed by dozens of accounting firms throughout New Zealand as we understand their issues.
