Buying and Selling Law Firms to and from Different Entities

Aug 9, 2023

I recently wrote a blog for the Association of Law Firm Merger Advisors (ALFMA), of which we are a founding member, on the subject of buying and selling law firms to and from different corporate entities.

Over the last few months we have been dealing with the sale and purchase of limited company law firms to both LLPs and other limited company law firms and also the sale of LLPs and partnerships to both LLPs and limited companies.

Each of those presents a range of different issues that need addressing. The blog looks at this.

It is another aspect of planning a sale or acquisition that need to be considered when looking to buy or sell a law firm.  It will depend on the existing set up of both buyer and seller, what they want to achieve and the negotiating strengths of each party.

The blog can be found here.
