Many of Rohan’s clients have achieved great satisfaction in building profitable practices from humble beginnings, often dealing with challenging circumstances along the way. One of the greatest feelings of satisfaction can come from a successful practice sale or merger; a profitable and successful deal is the ultimate reward for hard work and substantial investment.

Rohan has worked with many legal practice owners over more than 18 years as a professional services and business lawyer. In his experience, a successful sale or merger relies heavily on preparation and getting small details right. Make sure you don’t get caught out.
