Where Do I Begin?
Aspect Legal offers a number of services to help sellers
and prospective buyers
We start with a free initial consultation that provides an in-depth discussion of your plans, the legal
steps involved in a sale or purchase, the timeline for each step, and the other items you should be
considering. We are experienced in undertaking sale and purchase transactions from end to end.
We can be involved from early discussions on structuring and planning through to the transition and
integration of the acquired business. Once you have started down the transaction path, we will work
closely with you and your appointed advisers to ensure an integrated approach to the transaction. We
can provide checklists and regular updates throughout the process and keep you fully informed about
timelines, what we are doing, and what you need to be doing.
