Corporate

Our Corporate team assists companies of varying sizes – from entrepreneurial start-ups to major international organisations – across a range of corporate transactions, including M&A, reorganisations, venture capital, private equity investments, IPOs and joint ventures and restructurings. We are well versed in banking and finance, corporate governance and corporate tax. We pride ourselves on our specialist knowledge and depth of team providing a nationally regarded practice.

We focus on finding solutions rather than problems and invest time to understand what you want to achieve and then apply our expertise and experience to make you succeed.  Many of our lawyers have worked in-house, on secondment, or have previous industry expertise which means we understand the challenges you face and work with you to deliver practical, timely solutions.

One of our key strengths is our ability to handle cross-border transactions because we regularly work on major international deals.
