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.
Technology & Communications
Few industries evolve more quickly than technology and communications, so protecting proprietary data and innovations, securing skilled staff, maximising contractual relationships and exploiting brand assets are critically important.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Successful mergers and acquisitions demand much more from corporate lawyers than just executing the transaction. The lawyers in our Corporate team invest time in understanding our clients’ businesses and industry as well as being cognisant of our clients’ corporate and personal ambitions.
Tax, Rewards & Incentives
Navigating this complex and constantly evolving area presents real challenges for many businesses, entrepreneurs and executives alike, but the benefits – financial and otherwise – of getting tax, rewards and incentives right can be substantial.
