Whether you are a start-up setting out and looking to expand, an ambitious growth business preparing to float, or a multinational enterprise undertaking major acquisitions, complex corporate law issues span the entire lifecycle of any business.
Such challenges as selling your lifetime business, negotiating your next round of investment, or your shareholder rights or your next key acquisition, structuring your employee incentives, understanding governance issues and a raft of regulations and guidance are both commonplace and increasingly intricate. Each requires different skills and specific expertise from a range of legal practice areas, including tax, as well as real insight into nuances of the industry in question. We bring all of this together in one holistic, specialist team.
Unlike many corporate advisers, we are by no means purely transaction-focussed although it’s a large part of what we do. We often play a far more strategic role for our clients, driven by lasting business relationships and a partner-led, personalised service.
