Corporate

We have a national reputation for our corporate expertise and we work throughout the UK and abroad to make deals happen. We aim to be a key part of our clients' business development teams.

Successful businesses evolve and develop through deals and by maximising their returns on capital. We understand the way that businesses operate and the essential part that finance plays whether in terms of accessing finance for growth or realising value for shareholders.

As business lawyers of the highest calibre, we enjoy the detail and complexity of corporate deals. We are able to advise on the whole range of corporate transactions.

We have a number of clients who we have advised on several rounds of financing from banks and private equity / venture capital providers all the way through to their eventual exit, typically by way of trade sale or listing. 

We are instructed by a number of nationally recognised companies to assist on their acquisition programmes.  Our services, include carrying out due diligence on behalf of clients and producing due diligence reports for client companies and funders. On a typical acquisition, we will lead the legal process as well as draft and negotiate the legal agreements for the deal.

Our corporate lawyers are able to understand and deal with complex accounting and taxation issues.

Most importantly, we pride ourselves on our ability to generate and create transactions and to introduce clients to deals. We recognise that in today's business world, professional advisers need to be proactive and to be looking out for opportunities for their clients. This commercial philosophy is also reflected in our charging structures and our willingness to share risks with clients through contingent fees and equity stakes.
