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
“Thank you to Grant McCall, Laura Lynn and AMD Solicitors for the conveyancing work you recently carried out for the purchase of our house.
Your team were incredibly efficient and quick to get the process started, and as first time buyers who hadn’t been through the process before, were consistently patient and helpful in answering our numerous questions. Likewise, we were also very grateful for the advice and guidance Laura and her team gave to us about matters which we otherwise wouldn’t have considered or even known about.
As testament to the service provided the sale went through without any issues, and we have been very happily living there since, the perfect home for my wife and I and our small baby who arrived a short time after completion.
Since moving in, I have recommended AMD to a number of other friends, all of whom have been equally impressed with your service, and I will continue to do so. I look forward to working with yourself and AMD for all of our family matters over the years.”06/11/2023

“Thank goodness for Laura Lynn and Amanda Easton. Both were absolutely incredible during my flat sale and house purchase. Calm in the face of some extremely challenging moments and proactive in pushing things through to a successful completion. They kept me fully informed throughout and made sure I understood what was going on at every stage. I am so very grateful that I selected AMD and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them”.
