Our Corporate Team assists companies of varying sizes across a range of corporate transactions.  We invest time to understand what you want to achieve.

We work with companies from entrepreneurial start-ups to major international organisations, advising on corporate transactions, including M&A, reorganisations, venture capital, cross-border transactions, 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. We 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.


Joint Venture

We have the depth of experience to help you deliver your joint venture and the skills you want to help you manage the process and get the right result.


EU and Competition

We advise on merger control issues arising in significant national and international corporate transactions and have the experience to help your business in this complex and highly regulated area. Due to our presence on the Crown Commercial Services Legal Framework, we have also secured instructions from government departments and agencies.

Partnerships & LLPs

We advises on all aspects of law relating to general partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited partnerships. Our clients include businesses in all sectors but primarily professional services firms, institutional investment funds, manufacturing, charitable organisations and a very wide range of family businesses.


Growing your business

Our team can help your business take the next step in its growth, whatever that looks like. Our experts can advise you on fundraising (seed, crowd funding, VC, growth) through to M&A and listings, help you protect your intellectual property and brand, and navigate the quickly evolving regulatory framework concerning data privacy and consumer protection.

One client commented; excellent service with great backup covering all we needed while another source commends the group for "going the extra mile," saying: "They made sure we thought about where to focus our negotiations and energy either for the highest commercial value or for our protection."
