Sale of The Parade Day Nursery, Northampton
The sale of our children’s nursery was being conducted by our selling agent Redwoods Dowling Kerr. They recommended Coupe Bradbury solicitors to act on our behalf dealing with the legal process. We purchased the children’s nursery some 14 years ago and the ‘asset sale’ was a reasonably straightforward process. The Nursery, now a limited company, was being sold as a ‘share sale’ which appeared to be a much more complicated and difficult process to understand. Additionally, the nursery was situated almost 200 miles from both the selling agent and solicitor office which initially gave us concerns of communication especially with a share sale.
Both the selling agent and the solicitor allocated to us, Matthew Scott, assured us that most of communication could be done by phone and email. Throughout the process Matthew guided us through the difficult to understand Due Diligence requests as well as the Share Purchase Agreement. Matthew communicated the legal jargon down to a level that we could understand and was very efficient dealing with the sale. The buyer was demanding a very fast turnaround and thanks to Matthew and his Assistant Debbie this was accomplished.
We have no hesitation in recommending Matthew Scott of Coupe Bradbury solicitors in dealing with the sale of a business.
