Business and Commercial Services

MKB Law provides legal services for businesses in Belfast and throughout Northern Ireland. Our clients range in size, from PLCs to micro-enterprises, allowing us to tailor our services to meet the needs of different business models.

It is our belief that business legal services cannot be provided without understanding a client’s business and their aims. For this reason we emphasise a one to one relationship and continuity. It is only through this process that we can deliver exceptional support and become a trusted advisor, with the double benefit of being able to provide relevant legal advice.

Business Sale & Purchase

The Business & Commercial team at MKB Law advise business buyers and sellers of all sizes and types; we work with you from the inception of the transaction, through to completion and post-completion matters. We offer expertise in specialist sectors including: hotels, restaurants/bars, residential homes and manufacturing companies.

While the transaction is based on the Sale and Purchase Agreement, there are other legal documents to consider and prepare, including: property leases, tax deeds, contracts, intellectual property rights, and funding arrangements.

We also offer expert advice on business succession planning, and have been trusted advisors to many businesses undergoing this transition.
