Corporate and commercial law is at the heart of our business and just as your business is your livelihood, commercial law is ours.

Whether you need support for a merger or acquisition, advice on a listing or just a simple business to business contract negotiation, our lawyers have a passion for business which means we understand that your business is not just your livelihood but may represent years of hard work. Our aim is to ensure you achieve your commercial goals which means we undertake to spend time in getting to know and understand your business we go further than simply providing good legal advice.

Our expert team of corporate and commercial lawyers can advise on most aspects of company law. From advising start ups on the issues around setting up a new company including shareholders’ agreements to more complicated arrangements for more developed businesses such as joint ventures, and private equity investments acting for both the investors and the founders. We can help with corporate restructuring and share buybacks and pride ourselves on our public markets’ experience whether it is preparing for an IPO or secondary market advice. We advise on all the recognised UK public markets, in particular we have a wealth of experience in relation to the Standard List of the Main Market, AIM and NEX.
