Capital raising

Starting a business can often be very exciting and challenging at the same time. Depending on the size, the up-front costs and the type of business you want to launch, you may consider raising capital in order to grow your business.

These days, start-up business owners have more funding options, such as private investments from friends and family or even crowdfunding. We can assist you in the process of evaluating your funding options.

Stages of funding:

1. Business Plan
The first stage in your funding analysis should be to prepare a detailed business plan. The business plan will act as a guide in determining the best funding option for your business.

2. Funding Possibilities
When starting up your business, you should consider all your funding possibilities that are available to you, these include:

  • Bank loans and credit loans
  • Grants
  • Family and friends
  • Co-founders
  • Seed funding or seed capital
  • Crowdfunding

Our team can guide you through the process of obtaining adequate funding by assisting with:

  • Drafting and/or reviewing
    • Shareholders agreements
    • Subscription agreements
    • Term sheets
  • Advising on
    • Raising capital
    • Corporate governance

Potential mergers and acquisitions

We provide legal support for growth, covering due diligence, structuring, agreements, disposals, mergers, joint ventures, restructures, and capital-raising processes.

Business acquisitions

Acquiring a business requires careful consideration and close evaluation to ensure that all the details are taken care of and that you have proper financial protection. A business purchase lawyer can help guide you through every stage of the purchasing process. We can identify any potential challenges and work through them for the most favourable results by considering the vendor’s reason for sale, as well as the business’s:

  • Key customers and suppliers
  • Key assets and liabilities
  • Current or past disputes
  • Overall value

If you plan on selling your business, we can help you determine if a sale is your best option and — if so — that you walk away from the process in the best financial position possible. Our business sale lawyers facilitate a smooth and seamless handover by carefully performing tasks such as:

  • Compliance and due diligence
  • Drafting and reviewing contracts
  • Calculating the total value of your business
  • Negotiating the terms of sale
  • Exchanging the property
  • Settling the finalities

If you are being forced to sell due to financial hardships associated with your business, our team will do everything possible to find other options and treat the sale as a final resort.
