Whether you are a start-up looking to expand, an ambitious growth business preparing to list, or a multinational enterprise undertaking major acquisitions, complex corporate law issues span the entire lifecycle of any business.
Our team is supported by the full range of legal skills. Our engagements commonly involve and require us to work closely with our employment, tax, intellectual property, data and real estate colleagues.
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.
