Legal Considerations

Legal support is a vital aspect of any business sale. Depending on the type of business sale there will be several legal considerations that will need to be addressed, including advice on deal structuring, heads of terms, NDAs and reverse due diligence. In addition to corporate and commercial legal considerations, a sale may also require employment law and commercial property advice.

Providing end-to-end support, our expert team guides prospective sellers through the entire process to help with a smooth transition and maximise the results of the deal.

Reverse Due Diligence

When preparing for a business sale, it is important to complete a reverse due diligence exercise. This is a crucial process whereby GS Verde can act as a third party, objectively reviewing and assessing your business to determine its current condition, identify and plug any exposed areas of risk, and update or implement new contracts, terms and policies.

This process ensures that when the transaction's due diligence process is carried out, the paperwork is comprehensive, which removes the risk of any potential buyer using this as a tool to negotiate the commercial terms of the deal.


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

It was an absolute pleasure to have the team as GS Verde Law acting on my behalf. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the whole experience was fantastic due to their conscientious and professional approach at all times. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
