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.
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.
We advise directors and stakeholders on all aspects of your legal obligations and compliance issues. We also have experience in advising listed companies on the additional regulatory landscape and can also provide a full company secretarial service.
