No Sale, No Fee and no Upfront Fees
We offer a unique approach to buying, selling and merging law firms. TP Recruitment Limited charges 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 dependent on the size of the business. The seller pays no fee and there are no charges unless a successful deal occurs. We are business brokers (as well as recruitment consultants) and have been working with law firms 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. 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 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..
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 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 wide 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.
