Buying and Selling Agencies

For over 50 years our corporate lawyers have been helping owners and senior management in marketing and communications agencies set-up, develop, grow and sometimes sell their agency businesses.

Our corporate experts advise on  shareholder and partnership agreements;  creating bespoke incentive arrangements for key employees; structuring debt and equity investments; setting up,  acquiring and selling businesses here in the UK and overseas. We advise some of the major agency networks on their acquisitions as well as regularly acting for agency owners selling their agencies. We have acted on sales to trade and financial buyers, listed companies on the London Stock Exchange and helped owners transfer their business into employee ownership.
