We’ll help you structure deals that achieve your objectives while creating a profitable and happy relationship with the other party. In M&A deals, this includes working with tax and other specialists to ensure all shareholders (especially owner/directors) get the best possible outcome.
Well-crafted contracts help you deliver what the client needs, first time. So you get paid faster while achieving better margins, reduced risk and more follow-on business. And not just customer/supplier agreements, either – tricky company law documents must prepared accurately to ensure compliance, and make your business due-diligence ready.
A Devant review will quickly highlight risks and opportunities, helping you make fast bid/no-bid decisions and prepare for productive negotiations. Selling your business? We’ll help you understand and navigate the complexities of the Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) with confidence.
With us on your side, you’ll negotiate more confidently, get contracts signed quickly, manage risk appropriately and maximise profit. In M&A negotiations, you’ll close the deal you want in a cost-effective way, while maintaining good relationships.
“We’re really glad we invested in this process, and chose Devant to help us build even better relationships with our customers.”
You have a business outcome in mind. What’s not clear is how you’ll get there. We ask incisive questions to quickly get to the bottom of what you want to achieve, and the key factors driving the outcome. Thinking creatively, we’ll suggest different ways of achieving your goals that are legally effective, commercially astute and operationally achievable.
We help you think through the pros and cons of different sorts of business relationships.
Whether you’re looking at:
- resellers vs sales agents,
- prime-contract/sub-contract arrangements vs joint ventures,
- software licence models vs Software as a Service, or
- group framework agreements vs individual country contracts
– we’ll give you the insight, commercial guidance and legal confidence to choose the structure that will work best for you.
Are you adding a new product or service to your portfolio? Considering new routes to market? Or maybe looking at a company sale or investment? Give us a call to discuss what you’d like to achieve for your business.
You may be starting out in business, creating a new product or service, or just feel that your terms need a refresh. Perhaps you’ve been struggling to get others to sign your terms, and feel they should be more equitable. Or maybe you’ve been let down by your existing agreements, when a deal went sour and you were left with no recourse.
Once we’ve identified the right structure for your deals, we’ll ask questions to figure out how you do what you do, what makes a deal successful and where things are most likely to go wrong.
Our proven six-step contract drafting process has created over a thousand tailored contracts for businesses like yours. Using our contract writing skills, we’ll create terms that reflect your brand ‘personality’ and business values. They will become a valuable contributor to your sales process rather than something negative that gets in the way of selling.
You can have tailored, business-focussed agreements that support your business objectives, manage your risk and increase positive deal outcomes – without spending a fortune.
