Why Use Lakey

If you are looking to buy a new business we have been selling businesses across islands for over thirty years.

 If you are looking to sell a business it’s our job to help you find a buyer for your business, get the best price possible, and add value where we can. We have an extensive knowledge of buying, selling and developing businesses. We are known for friendliness, quality and a strong work ethic. We live and work locally but we can tap into a large, leading UK network, with excellent support and contacts.


Whether buying or selling the best situation for everyone is to meet with you and get a full understanding of what you are looking to achieve. We sit as intermediaries between both seller and buyer so it is important that we have a clear understanding of what you are ultimately looking for.

We can value your business based on strategic and financial drivers, with the aim of maximising its value. We market the business proactively and confidentially, using a combination of targeted marketing, media advertising, website exposure, our mailing list and our extensive UK and CI network. Were necessary we help you prepare professional, comprehensive and attractive sales particulars.

We negotiate with buyers and organise viewings. We handle all aspects of the sale process right up to completion, with the aim of achieving the best price for you, leaving you free to concentrate on running your business.

Our Aim

As a business broker, our principle operation is to match business buyers with those wishing to sell a business.

In order to assist both sides of the arrangement, we also offer peripheral services to the seller to help present a business in the best light for sale and to the buyer in terms of finance arrangements and continuity planning.

Business Acquisitions and Sales

At Lakey Offshore we can arrange the sale and acquisition of businesses. 

We have extensive lists of businesses wanted and buyers actively looking to purchase, whether in Jersey, Guernsey or elsewhere. We are first and foremost professionals who understand business and we are based locally in Jersey. Moreover, we have extensive national connections and a large database of potential buyers. We will always try to maximise the value of our clients’ businesses and have the knowledge and experience to achieve this.
