Services We Provide

Our corporate lawyers support you with every aspect of corporate law. We advise on best market practices covering a range of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, disposals, MBOs/MBIs, employee ownership, asset finance, development and start-up capital. We can help you with the following:

Company Law

Complying with UK legislation alone can be overwhelming. Our experts are here to help you understand your responsibilities and ensure your company is compliant.

Corporate Disposals, Mergers, Acquisitions & Restructuring

It can be difficult to sell your business, effect a management buyout, merge with another company, or abide by TUPE. We ensure your organisation is represented and advise you on how to merge businesses without risking unfair dismissal claims.

Our team can advise on corporate transactions with businesses operating outside the UK. They combine with our extensive network of international associations in 40 countries to navigate the differing legislation.

Set Up A Joint Venture

We help clients enter into joint ventures by establishing a fair agreement, protecting your intellectual property and preventing compliance issues. Plus, we ensure you can exit the venture in the future.

Shareholder Advice

We can prepare a shareholder's agreement and advise on your directors’ duties, Articles of Association and shareholders’ meetings. We can also help you obtain venture/development capital.
