At the forefront of opening up new ways to deliver business legal services, Outset’s approach combines consistent quality, excellent communications and leading edge technology to ensure the best possible outcome at an affordable cost.

Business Asset Sale & Purchase

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a business, or if you have agreed headline terms and need someone to help you through the legal process, we can help.

Our Lead Advisory team, supported by our Transaction Services team, will work with you to identify your key outcomes. We’ll help develop your understanding of the key transactional risks, and the various steps of the process.

We recognise that timing of the investment and key risks will be valuable to you. We have a focussed, project management approach to deliver that value – setting a timetable and milestones, identifying the areas which may cause delay and focussing on the important issues only. Our approach is designed to negotiate and deliver the deal on time, and with the minimum risk possible for you.

We advise businesses ranging from large multinationals, to owner managers and professional investors – whatever the scale and complexity of your needs, we’ll work with you to design a service which fits.

We also work alongside other key advisors to help you structure a sale or purchase and find a potential purchaser.

We see Outset as members of our team as we are all on the same side. We have a great working relationship where roles and rules don’t get in the way of getting the job done. They have always been fun and very easy to get on with.

I have worked with Outset for many years and I have found that they never rest on their laurels and constantly strive to work in partnership with us to ensure that their advice reflects our commercial ethos and approach to human resources and risk management.

Malcolm Frier, HR Director, FUJIFILM Speciality Ink Systems

We have engaged Outset on a number of occasions since December 2011 to provide us with legal and HR services covering a variety of issues. On each of these matters, we have found Outset to be detailed and robust in the handling of the matters. They were not risk adverse to support us in taking a calculated approach. The advice that we have received has been detailed and robust and has assisted our managers in handling situations confidently.

"Chloe is fantastic! She is always there for us, nothing is ever too much trouble and she goes above and beyond all the time. I know she is really busy but she always gets back to us promptly. Because she visits us regularly for the training updates, I feel she really understands the business and also the capabilities of the team.  She has become a real trusted help to us all."
