For over 20 years Jonathan Fagan Business Brokers have been assisting law firm & accountancy practice owners from the time they start out in business through to the sale of the practice or retirement.
We are able to offer you a personal service. Jonathan Fagan, a non-practising solicitor, deals with sales and purchases personally and is always available by email and phone during normal office hours. “I am always happy to have a confidential discussion regarding any aspect of running a law firm, whether it be in relation to recruitment, expanding, merging, selling, retiring and anything else that crops up. I may not always have all the answers, but I can almost always refer you to others more qualified to assist.”
Services to Sellers
We offer three services to owners looking to sell or dispose of their business.
No Fees, No Salespeople
Two major differences we offer compared with other business brokers:
- If you use our standard service we will not charge you any fees at any time.
- Jonathan Fagan is a non-practising solicitor and not a salesperson.
A lot of business broker services are essentially telesales operations. You know the ones I mean – no doubt you receive the same calls we get. “Have you ever considered selling your business” and “would you like a valuation” and “we have lots of buyers interested in businesses like yours”. These brokers are after one thing – an upfront payment for a business valuation that probably has no bearing on reality.
Small Team, Direct Contact
We have a very small team and each client has direct and personal contact. Jonathan deals personally with all potential buyers and we always tell you it like it is. If a buyer has previously wasted our time (it happens) we will let you know if they ask to see details of your business.
Our reach into the legal & accountancy markets is very wide indeed. We have been recruiting lawyers and accountants into law firms and accountancy firms for over 20 years and have a large database of lawyers, law firms, accountants and accountancy practices. We send out a monthly Legal Recruitment News email to over 15,000 solicitors and lawyers, together with Accountancy Recruitment News to over 11,000 accountants. We also email out weekly candidate and law firm sale updates to over 8,000 law firms and 9,000 accountancy firms.
On the recruitment side the majority of our clients and candidates remain with us for a long period of time. We supply permanent & locum candidates and interim lawyers to cover vacancies and contracts across the UK including London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and Birmingham.
