We offer a unique approach to buying, selling and merging law firms. We charge no upfront fees for making introductions for the sale, purchase or merger of a law firm. The buying party contracts with us to pay a success fee if a deal occurs. The seller pays no fees at all. We are business brokers (as well as recruitment consultants) and have been working with law firms on sales, acquisitions and mergers for a number of years.
There are very few professional services available to assist solicitors in buying, selling and merging law firms at a reasonable rate and on a no-sale no-fee basis. One professional law firm consultant charges £2,500 + VAT simply to consider your sale or merger before even progressing to advertising it – and then charges a percentage fee on top if successful. Others charge £500 to include your law firm in a list similar to the one below. We think this is unfair and unnecessary – you don’t pay an estate agent to sell your house before she has found you any buyers..why pay a business broker?
- Sale of a Sole Practitioner’s firm in Berkshire.
- Sale of an ABS law firm in London.
- Sale of a specialist law firm in Shropshire.
- Sale of a High Street firm in South Wales.
- Sale of a small High Street Solicitors’ firm in Leicester.
- Sale of a Sole Practitioner High Street Solicitors’ firm in North Lincolnshire.
- Sale of a small High Street Solicitors’ firm in Stoke on Trent.
- Sale and Transfer of Staff in a Personal Injury Practice in Manchester.
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 can provide guidance with various rule of thumb techniques as well as recommend accountants who will undertake the valuation for you.
Drop us an email – what have you got to lose? Or call 0800 246 5016 for a confidential discussion.
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 proposal to over 10,000 law firms and add you to our regular updates.
The procedure is as follows:
- All parties sign confidentiality undertakings.
- We agree terms with the buyer.
- The buyer is provided with further information about the practice for sale.
- The parties meet or speak about plans and proposals. These can be as varied as the partners of the selling firm joining the buyer’s practice or the selling partners accepting a lump sum in cash to exit the business.
- A deal is reached. The buyer pays us an introduction fee. This varies according to the sale/purchase in question. The seller pays no fee.
NB: We undertake our work buying and selling law firms via our related company TP Recruitment Limited, which also operates www.tenpercentfinancial.co.uk.
