We can help seal the deal
Our experienced commercial lawyers can negotiate with the other side during the sale or purchase of a business to help you secure a better deal. We often save clients thousands of dollars by securing more favourable terms. If there are any roadblocks, we can also address these to try and get the deal over the line for you.
What You Get
What does the Business Sale Negotiation package include?
Our Business Sale Negotiation package includes direct negotiation with the buyer/seller (or their lawyer) on your behalf to request changes to the terms of the Business Sale Contract. We normally have a good idea of the areas where they may agree to changes, whereas some areas are usually ‘non-negotiable’. Our support also includes reviewing and advising you in relation to their responses to the change requests.
