Guideline for the seller

Selling a company is challenging, time-consuming and often generates difficulties. Stumbling blocks can arise even as the relevant sale documents are being created, and it can also be difficult to find suitable, qualified potential buyers or to manage demanding negotiations. Professional help is well worth having, particularly in the completion phase and the creation of the necessary agreements.

Our guidelines for sellers describe the most important steps in the sale process and help you to get a better picture of the company sale and to carry out the necessary preparations. In addition, our references and success stories will show you examples of successful company sale, with which you may be able to identify.
