AMD Solicitors have extensive legal experience helping commercial clients with business acquisitions and company mergers. We have acted for both buyers and sellers of private limited companies, large and small, across a broad range of sectors.
Our specialist commercial lawyers seek to ensure the legal implications of any deal are considered in line with the commercial factors so our clients can continuously consider the merits of the deal during every stage of the process.
Although the process is not without risk, a successful business acquisition provides a good opportunity to acquire key assets such as personnel, contracts, client lists, alternate business strategies and brand/IP rights.
To minimise the risks of an abortive acquisition, careful planning and realistic timescales and deadlines are paramount. The earlier we are involved to help structure the deal and expedite the due diligence process, the better chance a deal will complete on time.

What our Clients say
“AMD Solicitors excelled in looking after us on a recent residential property sale in Bristol. They were friendly, attentive, efficient, and supportive throughout. We have also worked with AMD on commercial leases, and I thoroughly recommend them to anyone needing a reliable solicitor in Bristol”

“I simply cannot speak highly enough of my recent experience with AMD. Simone administered my late father’s estate, which was complicated and lengthy, with professionalism and an empathy that only comes with a person that is genuinely lovely. Simone’s colleague Beverly is also an absolute credit to the profession, chasing matters with external agencies to ensure everything was pulled together as quickly as these things are possible. Both of these lovely ladies kept in touch with me along the way, explaining things to me very patiently (often more than once!) in plain English so I was able to understand the procedures. Without their guidance I would have been lost! I found the fees charged to be very fair for their work and expertise and would not hesitate to recommend them”.13/12/2022
I wanted to take this time to express my gratitude towards yourself and Jack for the fantastic work you have produced on a shareholder’s agreement for our company, Howha PMI Limited.
We knew we needed a shareholder’s agreement, however, whilst we are experts in the Private Medical Insurance (PMI) field, I would say we are rather uneducated when it comes to shareholders’ agreements. Therefore, we wanted professional advice from someone who would explain the agreement, and process in plain English. Something I’m pleased to say both you and Jack achieved.
During the process we had to change the goal posts and AMD took this in their stride. We believe any company who have multiple directors should have a shareholder’s agreement in place and any company looking for one, should be contacting AMD Solicitors to set it up.
Thank you once again for your time and expertise.”
