Hi, if I am selling share in my business through a broker, am I a consumer in my dealings with the broker? Thank you.

Welcome to Just Answer, I am a solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.

Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.

I will go through your question and will get back to you with my answer shortly.

Meanwhile, please ignore any phone call request pop-up, they get generated automatically without any input from the expert, so I have no control over these requests.

Hi there,

It would be classified as Business to business contract , thus outside of the ambit of consumer Laws.

I hope this helps.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.

Thank you. Yes that's what I wanted to know. Hoped it would be consumer as they are shares I own personally rather anything to do with the business. Itself.
