Our experience includes advising on corporate acquisitions, disposals and fundraisings, private equity investments and exits, management buy-outs and buy-ins, joint ventures, restructurings 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.
