Overview

At LCF Law we work hard to make the complex simple for our clients. Even for companies who have undertaken multiple acquisitions and sales, and are familiar with the process, it can be time-consuming and very distracting.

Our job is to make the process as straightforward as possible by agreeing with you a clear plan of the legal work required and then working closely with all the relevant parties to make things happen.

Risk management is central to our approach. We ensure that our clients  understand particular risks that affect each transaction, whether they are buying or selling. 

We help clients to manage these risks to achieve a balanced outcome for both parties through various methods including: completion accounts, warranties and indemnities, earn outs, deferred consideration, exclusions, limitations, security such as debentures, and legal charges and quasi-security such as personal guarantees. 

Our experience allows us to identify the issues that can affect the deal value; to understand them thoroughly; and to implement appropriate solutions, so that your deal continues unaffected and successfully.
