We advise on every facet of our client’s corporate legal needs through the complete life-cycle of an enterprise, from its inception, through its growth and expansion to, perhaps, its sale or flotation on a public market.
Our teams focus on acquiring a deep understanding of the particular needs and objectives of our clients to deliver advice and outcomes that are tailored to those needs and objectives and which meet them swiftly and cost-effectively. The approach to technical problems is informed, insightful and proportionate, and we take pride in viewing problems from a fresh perspective to provide innovative solutions.
We act for clients across a range of sectors including manufacturing and technology, finance and banking, natural resources and professional services.
We have extensive experience in advising on and managing cross-border transactions. We frequently act for overseas clients, whether directly or on behalf of overseas law firms, who are engaging in transactions in the UK, including clients from the USA, Switzerland, Malaysia, Singapore, India, UAE, South Korea, France, Italy, and Germany.
Equally we have advised and managed corporate transactions including targets in the US, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Fiji and Brazil. To deal with these projects we have nurtured excellent relationships with trusted law firms in those jurisdictions and acquired the experience to manage documentation and reporting across long distances and differing time zones.

start-ups, investment and corporate structuring
investment and fund structures
corporate acquisitions, disposals and mergers, both private and public
capital market admission, further issues, "take-private" transactions and market compliance
