Buying and Selling a Business

Livingstons specialist business team can help guide you through the technicalities of buying or selling a business.

With years of experience in company and commercial law behind them, Steve Walker and Kim Chambers are able to offer you a jargon free professional service from the start of the deal through closing the transaction. They advise clients on business sales and purchases, including management buy outs, management buy ins, asset sales and share sales.

With a free initial meeting and clear information on costs and timescales from the outset we aim to complete all transactions in a speedy, efficient and cost effective way.


Our employment team has received (and continues to receive) a large number of requests for help from companies who would like assistance with interpreting the ongoing changes to the furlough scheme and/or who are advance planning for when the furlough scheme comes to an end.  Some of this planning may involve consideration of short-time working or even redundancies and some involves dealing with specific concerns that returning employees may have about health and safety or about childcare and other obligations.

We have produced a number of factsheets for our employer clients which explain the Government guidance and which provide some practical guidance on how to deal with some of these matters.

If you have any specific queries about ending your furlough scheme or need any assistance with restructuring your business in light of the ongoing economic difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, please e-mail Steve Walker at or Gail Black at

Full details of how we are dealing with Coronavirus are available here.

We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during this difficult time.
