Management Buy-outs

A management buy-out takes place when an existing management team acquires the shareholding of the current owners of the company. Glanvilles Corporate practitioners have a wide range of experience in advising management teams on acquiring companies.

This experience also covers advising owners of companies who are selling out to the management team. As part of this process, we can advise and assist with the negotiation and documentation surrounding the financing of the management buy-out.

With many years of experience guiding businesses management buy-outs under a range of circumstances, our Corporate & Commercial team can ensure every detail is taken care of, helping you to achieve your goals while maintaining legal compliance at every stage.
