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.

Such challenges as selling your lifetime business, negotiating your next rounds 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 form the mainstay of our corporate practice. Each requires different skills and specific expertise from a range of legal practice areas as well as real insight into nuances of the industry in question. We bring all of this together in one team.

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.
