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 second year in a row, as well as ranking an impressive 8th nationally.
Ambitious management teams looking to take the step up to owning the business they run need legal advice that matches their aspirations.
In a similar vein, private equity firms and debt funders looking to help finance management buy-outs and management buy-ins require a legal team that is agile, commercially-focused and can be relied on to get the job done.
Ward Hadaway’s experienced corporate team have advised on a wide range of MBOs and MBIs in a broad spectrum of industry sectors, from manufacturing and engineering to professional services and retail.
We have the expertise and the strength in depth to deal confidently with everything from a management team’s first-time MBO to the latest investment for an experienced private equity house.
We have experience of acting for the sellers, management teams, equity funders and debt funders. This breadth of experience enables us to ensure we provide sensible, rounded advice to whichever party we are advising as we have a first hand knowledge of the needs and issues of all parties involved.
The range of deals we can advise on encompasses anything from a single SME buyout to public to private transactions and buyouts of multinational groups.
Whilst often having to react quickly to the opportunity, we take time to understand the key drivers behind the deal and provide early solutions to issues. This enables us to drive the process to completion on time and in a cost-effective manner, whilst causing minimum disruption to the business.
Our services include advice on:
- Acquisitions – domestic and overseas
- Exit planning
- Investment Agreements
- Public to private transactions
- Taxation advice
