We have extensive experience in acting 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 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 recently assisted with the creation of a Will for myself. Their Private Client team were fantastic throughout the whole process. The initial meeting was able to be conducted over video call, during which they were able to answer various questions I had and advise as to the appropriate action to take. Subsequent correspondence was clear and prompt, I particularly appreciated the practical advice in relation to the witnessing of documents whilst under lockdown arrangements. I would not hesitate to recommend AMD Solicitors to others, keep up the good work!”25/02/2021
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
“AMD, especially Laura, have been amazing! Laura has been incredible, clearly knows what she’s doing and is very knowledgeable about the law too! She is patient, always responds to calls and emails and we couldn’t recommend her, and her team, more highly!”29/03/2021
I wish to thank AMD solicitors and especially Grant McCall and Helen Brewer. It has been a hard year for businesses, but thankfully having Grant and Helen by my side in every step of forming my new company, it was a blessing! We had to work together on multiple occasions from the initial theoretical structure of my new business to the final touches of all the material and non-material aspects of it! I can’t thank you enough for giving me the gift of “peace of mind”. Now I can look at the future without being pulled back to rebuilding basic structures of all the legal aspects of my new company. Thank you Grant and Helen. Thank you AMD solicitors.01/01/2021
