Payne Hicks Beach further strengthens Company Commercial department

Leading London law firm, Payne Hicks Beach, has enhanced its Company & Commercial Department with key lateral hire, Nick Sayers. Nick joins as a Partner from Fox Williams LLP on 13 June.

Nick specialises in corporate finance, predominantly advising on mergers and acquisitions and listings on AIM.  He has been instructed on a wide range of transactions and has a wealth of experience in deals of up to £100 million.  Nick’s practice encompasses both domestic and international clients and he has particular expertise advising those from the US and the Far East. Regularly cited in the legal directories, Legal 500 praises Nick as giving “considered, practical advice.”

The appointment of Nick Sayers comes only three months after Max Baird- Smith joined the Company & Commercial Department as a Partner from BDGS Associés in Paris.

The Department is well known for its advice on wide-ranging corporate and commercial matters, with significant capabilities in transactional work, for clients of all types (including entrepreneurs and multi-national clients) across an extensive range of business sectors.

Nick Sayers comments:

“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Payne Hicks Beach.  It is a top firm, and in particular, its Corporate & Commercial Department has built a significant reputation, providing a high quality and personal service to its clients, which include both family-owned and multi-national organisations.  I look forward to developing my practice at the firm.”

Alastair Murdie, Senior Partner, comments:

“It is exciting to welcome Nick Sayers to Payne Hicks Beach as our Company & Commercial Department goes from strength to strength.  The firm continues to meet the demands of its domestic and international clients with key external lateral hires, in addition to internal promotions.”
