Buy or Sell a Solicitors Practice

Do you want to merge or sell your practice, or do you plan to buy a law firm?

Solicitors for sale - buy and sell solicitors firms
TP Legal – the low risk option for buying and selling solicitors firms.

There are very few professional services out there to assist solicitors to buy and sell law firms, but one professional law firm consultant charges £2,500 plus VAT simply to consider your sale or merger, together with a percentage fee on top if successful..

We offer a different approach. We charge no upfront fees at all for making introductions for the sale or purchase of a law firm – our fees apply only when a successful transaction occurs – both parties pay a success fee dependent on the size of the business – and payment can be in monthly instalments. There are no fees unless a successful sale or purchase is achieved.

If you are looking to sell or acquire a solicitors firm please get in touch. Email cv@ten-percent.co.uk in the first instance.

Naturally we will immediately sign a confidentiality undertaking and require any other parties to do the same during the process.

Valuations are best done by your accountants when anyone is ready to consider purchasing your firm, but usually it is a fairly straightforward process – turnover, net profit, number and type of ongoing files and value of assets including will banks. The price anyone else will pay varies widely according to the practice in question.. – the location, the assets, the types of law covered, the number of staff etc.. We think it unlikely that any upfront fee services can adequately predict what this will be and believe that making a payment before anyone has actually indicated an interest in buying your law firm is very risky indeed, particularly when the fee is £2,500 plus VAT or more.

Drop us an email in the first instance – what have you got to lose?

NB: if you don’t want to identify your firm simply email us from a gmail or hotmail account (or similar). We can advertise your sale or purchase to over 10,000 other law firms and add you to our regular updates.

Unique Opportunity for a Clean Break – Offshore Law Firm for sale/partnership Ref VAC 17235

Very rare chance to take partnership in an offshore law firm. The practice undertakes a range of work that includes (properly funded) legal aid crime work – which is fairly lucrative without much competition, family and commercial. The crime work is a mix of mainstream general crime, some specialist complex matters and some military. The firm would be interested in speaking to anyone looking to run their own practice on a full time or part time basis. Not necessarily seeking an immediate buyout or purchase of equity. Opportunity to benefit from profitable levels of legal aid rather than punitive. Owner looking to move on to non-law related pastures new and move back on shore. Well established law firm in a stunning location offshore. Very similar law to England and Wales. Current partner happy to stay in situ to assist or sell outright. All options available for purchase – including working for the equity (very little upfront cash needed) and splitting the commercial matters away from the private work. This law firm purchase would particularly suit a crime solicitor looking to make a clean break and start again with an existing business already operating. The practice would also make a good branch office. Thriving local market for legal services with further expansion very possible. Location identified once a confidentiality undertaking signed.
