The Deal

Thinking of selling or growing your business? Then The Deal could be for you...

What is The Deal?

It’s an interactive, engaging and enjoyable training session that helps you understand what it feels like buying or selling a business.

Why attend?

The Scottish and UK “deals” market is currently in very good health and there are lots of opportunities for businesses who might be interested in business growth via an acquisition or might be considering an exit.

What will you learn?

MacRoberts' deals team – who have worked on some of the UK’s most high profile and high value corporate transactions as well as many of Scotland’s SME transactions – will take you through:

  • Common pitfalls when doing deals and how to avoid them
  • How to maximise value – both as a buyer and a seller
  • Deal risks and how to mitigate against them

These workshops normally run from 12.30-5.30pm. Lunch prior to the event and refreshments and networking afterwards are included.

Please note your attendance and anything discussed on the day is treated as highly confidential.

We run these workshops throughout the year. For further details, please contact our Corporate Finance team.
