Business Sale & Purchase

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.

Transaction Services

Our Transaction Services team work alongside our lead advisory team in carrying out and reporting on, or responding to “due diligence” enquiries – the questions that identify potential risk in target businesses.

Our approach is focused on advising on risks in the context of your commercial aims, as well as helping guide you through the practical steps required, whether you are buying or selling. The transaction services team will also deal with the necessary ancillary documentation, such as Companies House filings and company secretarial/corporate governance matters. We recognise the value of the practical alongside the legal, and deliver that value by developing a service which is tailored to meet your required outcomes.

For each transaction, we assemble a multi-disciplinary team, dependent on your areas of need. You will have an experienced primary and secondary contact within the team, so you will always be able to speak to us when you need to.

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.

David Hillier, Group CEO, Independent VetCare Group

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."
