Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul's Churchyard

Join our free seminar on business acquisitions and disposals in the Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral.

Accountants & Corporate Finance Advisers Shaw Gibbs and Law Firm Michelmores combine their wealth of experience to discuss the practicalities of the transaction process and provide insight into the critical preparations (and pit falls to avoid) to maximise value and minimise stress when buying or selling a company.

Looking at the complex, interconnected layers that are the basis of the prosperity of your business - and at those features which are critical in the eyes of acquirers - the seminar is essential for shareholders, directors and those making significant corporate decisions for the future of successful private businesses.
