Corporate Finance

Our Corporate Team provides a proactive, first class service to venture capitalists, banks, asset financiers and private investors. We have extensive experience on all types of corporate finance transactions, including acquisition finance, lead advisory roles on IBO’s/MBO’s, development capital deals and restructurings/refinancing. We have particular expertise in EIS and VCT investments and have a streamlined and efficient system for private and institutional investors – even on smaller investments.

All of our transactions are partner led and negotiated, providing you with access to the real expertise and experience that you need to get to the issues fast and find a clear, cost-effective and commercial solution.

Our international associations also means that we are uniquely placed to deliver smaller and mid-market international deals with a service that competes with the large national firms.

In addition, we provide a full range of portfolio services, including security reviews and refinancing. We also provide a full advice service on all aspects of Financial Services and Company law.
