Legal Considerations

Legal support will be required when acquiring a business; from completing the necessary due diligence to advising on deal structure and legal completion. There will be several legal factors relating to an acquisition, including contracts, confidentiality and heads of terms. At GS Verde Law, our expert team brings a wealth of experience to navigate buyers through the legal factors and considerations to help maximise deal value and avoid delays.

Due Diligence

Due diligence is an extensive review or audit of a business before an acquisition is completed; ensuring all the financial, legal and operational information supplied by the prospective business is verified. The process helps to understand the nature of the transaction, any barriers or risks involved, and ultimately whether to proceed with the purchase.

The process provides the buyer with assurance of exactly what they are purchasing. Ensuring that any decision regarding the acquisition is an informed one maximises the chance of adding value in a transaction.


We would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a merger, acquisition or MBO to use the GS Verde Group.
