  • Overview

    Management Buy-out Solicitors

    A management buy-out (MBO) is a transaction where the owner of a Company sells some or all of the shares to members of the management team. Often the management team will set up a new company as the acquisition vehicle (Newco).  Frequently the funding for an MBO may be provided by a mixture of funds from the management team, private equity and bank lending. 

    It is fairly common now for the seller to sometimes retain an interest in the Company in the form of debt which is repaid over time. This is often referred to as vendor financing and, in some transactions, all of the MBO is vendor financed. In these circumstances a seller will typically require additional security. Each MBO is different. Therefore, with our clear approach and practical support and advice, we can help with the MBO, ensuring that the deal is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Our corporate and commercial team offers you expert advice based on proven experience and extensive knowledge of MBO’s in many industry sectors, combined with the help of our other commercial teams from commercial property, intellectual property and employment.

    We can assist with all aspects of the legal process and guide you through the sale or purchase, whether you are part of the MBO management team or the seller, where our services often will include dealing with:

    • Structuring and co-ordinating the management buy-out
    • Heads of Agreement
    • Non Disclosure Agreements
    • Share Purchase Agreement
    • Formation of Newco
    • Articles of Association
    • Subscription/investor agreement or Shareholders Agreement
    • Security documents, inter-creditor deeds and cross guarantees
    • Loan Notes
    • Board Minutes and Shareholder Resolutions
    • Directors Service Agreements.

Client

I use TS&P as I have a very longstanding relationship. James Partridge has detailed knowledge of the affairs of my organisation and this, coupled with his sharp legal skills, means that I don't look elsewhere

Client

I expect and receive first class advice and service. This is helped by James's knowledge of my organisation and a good chemistry between us. I like to understand the reasons for the advice and James is focussed and succinct when discussing matters over the phone

Client

Many thanks for your support and sterling efforts in achieving completion of this transaction on the target date. Look forward to the next challenge!

Client

Thank you for confirmation that completion has taken place, I am delighted with the outcome and for all the hard work that you and your team have put in to get the deal done on time.

Client

I would like to put pen on paper that i have been very impressed by the total professional way and helpful manner that my matter has been handled from start to finish. I wish other lawyers would have the same approach.

Client

I do feel that both Ben and Julie have been excellent throughout this. The money they have, they were only ever going to get a strong law firm and I feel they would have got the impression throughout this that I too have obtained the services of people that know what they were doing and couldn't be overpowered or pushed around. I'm convinced that ultimately the strong showing from the two of you is what has actually got an agreement out of court rather than them pitying me so I wanted to express my genuine appreciation to you both.
