Clinton Lee Founder, UK Business Brokers

Welcome to UK Business Brokers. My name is Clinton (find me on LinkedIn).

After 30+ years Iof buying and selling over two dozen businesses in my own name (and with my own money), I now assist other business owners with extracting value from their businesses. Hundreds of business owners like you have seen higher prices, faster sales and more secure transactions from using my advice. 

Read what some of those business owners have to say:

My advice on valuing and selling businesses has featured on almost every major UK business site, including the below:

A phone consultation with me is free, but for maximum benefit you need to get in touch before you've spoken with any business broker or had one of their "free valuations" (as there can be severe risks to contacting brokers directly).

Why come to me?

Unbiased, highly regarded, professional advice on selling businesses and years of experience at the coal face.

There are multiple ways to release value from a business. Business brokers tend you direct you towards just one: an outright sale, because they work on percentage commissions. I don't. 

Besides, some brokers can severely damage the value you've built in your business. Speak with me before you instruct one! Whether you need a broker on not, this is the place to start your research on selling your company.

I'm passionate about helping business owners like you extract maximum value from their businesses. Thousands have benefited from the advice in my newsletters and articles, hundreds from my personal assistance. I occasionally have busy patches where I turn down new clients, but if I can't take you on I'll at least provide some useful pointers and a handy PDF guide or two, at no cost, specific to your situation.


Remember, the business I'm in is all about confidentiality and trust, and that starts with how I respect your email address and privacy. I'm not a "lead generator", I don't collect your IP and other details to sell to brokers. I do not send out marketing emails as I've never needed to do that. Unlike with other sites there is no tracking here (except Google Analytics used to understand how visitors are using this website and cookies to serve premium material to subscribers). And if you do take my offer for a free phone chat, everything you say to me is covered by my universal non-disclosure promise.

The advice in the free newsletter should itself make or save you many thousands of pounds and, of course, you can unsubscribe at any time with immediate effect.
