Ward Hadaway is celebrating after being recognised as the busiest corporate dealmaker in the North East in the annual Experian MarketIQ league tables for the third year in a row, coming top of the tables by volume of deals, and by their value.
Acquisitions can make or break a business so you need legal advice you can really rely on – and lawyers who speak your language.
The range of sectors in which we have carried out acquisitions is equally wide and takes in everything from manufacturing, business services and IT to telecoms, printing, media, recruitment and motor dealerships and everything in between. The size of our team provides a very wide range of experience in different industries which we can utilise for your benefit wherever you are based.
With the increase in cross-border transactions we have undertaken many acquisitions in various countries around the world. Our experience, coupled with that of colleagues in our global alliance of professional firms, means whether you are acquiring a company just around the corner or on the other side of the world, we can provide the same degree of help.
Our acquisitive clients include owner-managed businesses, plcs, international groups, venture capitalists, private equity houses and management teams. Our approach is tailored to your needs and experience – to those perhaps embarking on their first acquisition we can provide a real “hand-holding” service bringing our commercial experience to bear as well as our technical legal skills; to experienced acquirers, we will seek to understand your areas of concerns and focus and concentrate our work in those areas.
We can also assist in finding appropriate acquisitions from our wide range of UK contacts or through our extensive overseas professional network.
So whoever you are, whatever and wherever the deal, we have the expertise and the resources to give you the very best advice and guidance, delivered in a pragmatic, no-nonsense manner.
Our services include advice on:
- Due diligence
- Employment advice
- Overseas Acquisitions
- Raising Capital
