Evolution Lawyers

Looking to buy or sell a business?

We specialise in all legal aspects of business sale and purchase.

Business Sale & Purchase

If you are considering buying or selling a business (or part of it), we can help with the legal side of the transaction to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. Our lawyers are skilled at dealing with the issues and challenges that can arise during all stages of the business sale and purchase process, from initial due diligence to settlement and beyond. Whether you are selling or buying, and no matter if the business is small or large, we can help protect your interests, minimise risk, and reduce stress by providing pragmatic and cost-effective legal advice.

Business Sale & Purchase

Get the contract reviewed before you sign 

We always recommend our clients have business sale and purchase contracts reviewed by a lawyer before signing. As part of this process, we can either review an agreement that has already been prepared, for example by a business broker acting for the vendor, or prepare an agreement from scratch to suit the particular transaction.  

Being involved at this early stage, or even earlier to assist with due diligence and negotiation, can help to ensure our clients are agreeing terms, conditions, warranties, and undertakings that are as favourable as possible.  It also reduces the likelihood of surprises in the fine print.   

Working with experts    

We often work with business brokers, chartered accountants, and other professional advisers as part of the sale and purchase process. Our pragmatic approach to dealing with these advisers minimises the risk of legal impediments, while ensuring our clients receive the specialist advice they need, particularly relating to taxation.

In our property buying experience, George from Evolution Lawyers has been absolutely fantastic, always picking up the phone and explaining some confusing points we encountered. The firm will definitely be our first choice when it comes to conveyancing. I would absolutely recommend them!

I had a case where I was looking around for a family member who was not mobile. Another lawyer put it in the too hard basket, but Evolution Law heard me out. I can not say enough about the great experience I had with Evolution Law. Lindy worked on my case, I felt heard, and she went back to make sure she could help. I was so happy they could take on our case. She kept me informed the whole way through and never made me feel like she was too busy even though I know they are busy. She pulled out all the stops. LINDY You are a star, you helped when I thought it was not possible! Thank you for everything and your wonderful team for helping my brother and I out. Your help has actually helped more than just the two of us. I am truly grateful for your help. Thank you.

Tamina and the team are excellent. I found them easy to understand as someone who isn't in the know for lawyer speak and they got the jobs I needed sorted done in and around lockdowns and COVID restrictions and my tardy replies with required information. Very happy with the service.

I have used Evolution for several years now and have always found them great to deal with and accommodating myself and my whanau needs. Lindy and Georgia are great to deal with in my recent needs, and previously Kieran and Thomas were great too.

Tamina from Evolution Lawyers was awesome to deal with. She was always quick to respond and explained things in a really simple way for us to understand. We found her very knowledgeable and was upfront on our options in case something didn't work out. Thanks Tamina.

Evolution Lawyers have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Our New Build home and our first in NZ was managed with professionalism, understanding, compassion and just an all round excellent experience. Kieran Boyle and Lindy Van Eck provided an awesome service and I can’t thank them enough for what would normally be a stressful time this was not the case for us it was such a smooth process. They were always happy to answer any of our questions or concerns. Thanks Team, Merry Christmas and we wish you all a prosperous New Year in 2022.
