Buying & Selling a Business

We represent both buyers and sellers of businesses in Queensland and New South Wales, acting for national enterprises, franchisors, franchisees and local business owners.

In particular, we have considerable experience with the following types of business sale transactions:

  • Cafes, bars and restaurants
  • Gyms and fitness centres
  • Agricultural and primary production
  • Medical and health-related practices
  • Retail businesses
  • Light industrial and manufacturing

Our services in this area can usually be offered on a fixed-fee basis, so our clients know upfront exactly what will be delivered and for what price.

Why do I need a solicitor when buying or selling a business?

These transactions are complex, usually involving  the assignment of a commercial lease or the purchase of commercial property, capital gains tax considerations, stamp duty, equipment lease assignments and the transfer/termination of employees.  In consideration of these challenges, our experienced solicitors have created a streamlined and affordable process to help you navigate the challenges and remove unnecessary stress from the transaction.  

We offer a free 40-minute initial consultation to buyers and sellers of businesses to discuss the transaction and provide a fixed-fee quote.
