Company & Commercial

Our corporate team gives clear, pragmatic and commercial advice. We combine these essentials with our commitment to delivering a first-rate, personalised and responsive service to our clients.

We provide services to clients wishing to sell their businesses, or to raise capital for them, or that wish to make investments, dispose of existing assets or enter into strategic partnerships. Our experience includes advising on corporate acquisitions and disposals, capital markets transactions and private fundraisings, private equity investments and exits, management buy-outs and buy-ins, joint ventures and reorganisations.

We work as an integrated team with specialists in other departments of the firm in order to provide the full complement of legal services and all-round technical expertise that our clients require. For international work, as we are independent, we are able to select and work with the best lawyers for the job in the jurisdictions where overseas advice is needed.

Our clients include high-net-worth individuals, business owners, private and publically listed companies, international groups, family offices and private equity and sovereign wealth funds. We have significant experience in acting for wealthy individuals in relation to their corporate law and business requirements, complementing the firm's leading position for private client and family work.

We advise clients who operate across a wide range of different industries and sectors including financial services, technology, professional services, hotels and leisure, real estate, publishing, fashion, media, sport, food and beverages, manufacturing, automobiles and transport. We provide advice on a full range of company and commercial law matters for many of our clients.

We value long-term successful relationships with our clients, which is why we spend time getting to know their businesses and commercial objectives, so we can provide the right solutions to the issues that matter to them.
